Verdict

Azure Fly has started favourite in all three runs over hurdles to date and won very easily at Stratford in the latest of them. He will make a bold bid to defy his penalty but there will surely be more to come from URIAH HEEP this season. He arrives fit from the Flat and was an 87-rated handicapper for Sir Michael Stoute last year. Quite highly tried in his two hurdle runs last autumn, he should know more this time around. Jonnie Skull has more to do than when making all at Stratford but Uramazin is an interesting newcomer. He won five times at Sha Tin in his younger days, including a Grade 2, but may need this.
