Verdict

Not many of these arrive in good form so it could pay to stick with MARKAMI. An import from France, he had only raced over hurdles in this country until scoring over 1m5f on the Polytrack at Lingfield last time and has plenty of scope for further progress. Travel rattled-up a hat-trick on the all-weather earlier this year and may figure on his return to this surface while Dark Ranger won a better contest over track and trip last season but is 5lb higher today. Burnham has a shout and winning hurdlers Softsong and Courtesy Call have both won on the Flat before and could also get involved.
