We open with a maiden hurdle here and while good recent form is non-existent it should remain fairly competitive and we tip JIMBATAI to take victory here with Saddlers' Supreme and Hareem offered up as each way alternatives.The selection is from the yard of Tim Vaughan who are in some decent form of late. He hasn't been seen on the track since September of last year. He ran with credit there and looked to be progressing. He will have benefitted for the break and the going and distance should suit. Saddler's Supreme showed a bit of ability in four bumper starts last term and she ran a satisfactory race on her hurdles debut last time. That was back in December but the mare should have come on for that run. Hareem has had one outing so far this year but failed to impress. The experience may prove to be of little benefit to the gelding who last win came in 2007. He has proved to be a little unpredictable in the past but in such lowly company he is capable of a finish in the minors. Micky Hammond's San Deng has progressed over two outings this year but is without a win for nearly four years and will need to show vast improvement if he is to challenge our selection Jimbatai.
