Verdict

Isobella Blue won a couple of minor handicaps in the summer before disappointing in her hat-trick bid at Downpatrick in August. She may just need this after her break and Sun Fisher has shown his best form when tackling further than this. Tinas Exhibition is still a maiden over hurdles and has had enough chances but Starling Lady produced a better effort last time and is at the right end of the handicap. ECHO BOB has plenty of weight but is in fact well in compared to his chase rating where he's 26lb higher. This isn't the toughest of races and, though returning from a break, he should have enough quality to defy his burden.
