Not much to go on in this low-grade handicap but QUAYSIDE COURT was alongside eventual third Malin Head when falling at Wincanton last month and is fractionally better off at the weights now. He could be the value today as Might As Well was only seventh in that race and looks held and, while this is the weakest race that Black Phantom has so far contested over fences, the winning hurdler has yet to show even a flicker of ability over the larger obstacles and was pulled up when Roybuoy finished fourth at Exeter last month. Strawhall Maul has place claims again and is preferred to veteran Marked Man and maiden Thirtytwo Red of the others.
