Verdict

On paper this selling hurdle looks a two horse race between Levitski and LORD BASKERVILLE a while things rarely pan out that way we prefer the latter with Rawaabet also fancied to get in on the act. Our selection, Lord Baskerville, is the highest rated in this field and showed he was in good heart last time finishing just behind a subsequent higher rated winner over course and distance in one of these races last time. Given his performance and the poor effort of Levitski on that one's last outing he looks to have been given a good opportunity to score. That last run from Levitski saw Jonjo O'Neill's charge get turned over as favourite when failing to take advantage of a good opportunity in one of these races. That though was just his second run after a longish absence and if he can show his form of last season he should go close. Rawaabet is the only other that makes any appeal here and has 13lbs to find on the selection according to the official ratings and he also has some form to overturn after meeting the pick last time. All that said he should be in the prize money. Even by selling standards this isn't that competitive with Lord Baskerville landing the selection.
