HUMBLE OPINION may hold the answer to this competitive handicap where Akram and Yetholm are just two of many to consider. Alan King's charge moves into the handicap ranks for the first time after three runs at Taunton and he appeared to be gradually getting the hang of hurdling. The handicapper hasn't taken too many chances but it will be disappointing if there isn't more to come from this useful Flat performer and the quicker ground should suit. Yetholm represents the yard responsible for last year's winner and is open to improvement as he strengthens up as he appeared to struggle to see out his races last term. Akram hasn't always appeared to be the most straightforward and may fare better once the cheekpieces are put back on and of more interest may be Simply Blue who is fairly handicapped on the pick of his form. Norisan is a good deal higher than when landing a few bets over course and distance a year ago and may be best watched unless attracting support which also applies to Kyoto who probably has more to offer. Preference, then, is for Humble Opinion.
