Verdict

A big field handicap hurdle for the next and this looks a very wide open race but maybe MARDOOD can go in again ahead of Apache Blue and Boyoboy. The selection is looking to win his fourth race on the bounce and looks to have a life chance. He has been giving a little break by his trainer to help freshening him up and hopefully it will do the trick. Denis O'Reagan is also a very positive jockey booking. Apache Blue is from a top stable and ran better than his finishing position suggests last time. That was a competitive race for the grade and this drop in trip may also help. Boyoboy finished an unlucky second behind the selection on his second last start. He will be in the shake up again but we feel Chris Grant's charge can fend him off once more. Humorous, Archie's Wish and Toujours Souriante are others to note in a wide open race.
