      Verdict

      It will be interesting to see of there is any market support for hurdling newcomer High Holborn, who makes his debut for David Pipe today having formerly been with Julia Tooth, but a better bet looks to be BEYOND and he gets the verdict with Gypsy Jazz rated the best of the rest. The selection is another making their first start over timber but the son of Galileo showed decent form from limited opportunities for Jeremy Noseda, winning his last two of three starts, and he looks worth siding with on his first start for Evan Williams. Clayton Flick remains a maiden after 15 starts on the flat but may improve for going over hurdles for Andy Haynes, while Glen Lass has won five times in claimers including on his most recent start at Windsor and is another making his hurdling debut and has to be considered. Jennie Candlish's Gypsy Jazz is relatively unexposed after just five career starts and could be of interest first time up over hurdles but preference is for Beyond, who can make a winning debut for Evan Williams.
