Verdict

This looks a bit more competitive than the usual run-of-the-mill maiden hurdle. Go West Young Man boasts decent form at a higher level but is still chasing a first win after 16 previous starts and isn't the easiest of rides. Bryden Boy is equally exposed but Irish raider Dubai Devils has had just the one run over hurdles and only found one too good at Musselburgh while there is probably more to come from Master Ally. GOLDEN INVESTMENT was the only one to make a race of it with two well-backed runners at Catterick in January. He's improving with experience and could be a bit of value in this. Newcomer Bellator represents Nicky Henderson but has a chasing pedigree.
