Verdict

Doux Douce and Armed Guard occupied the places behind Zambezi Tiger over 1m4f a week ago but neither have ever been anywhere near this trip. Nor has Only One Galileo, who was well beaten. But winning hurdler Nurse Ryan has no problems staying while the veteran Well Insured wasn't beaten far in this last year. Magical Moon was in decent form on the Flat and over hurdles last summer but hasn't run since October and is still a maiden, as is Furacano who hasn't run beyond 1m3f. MAD FOR ROAD gets the vote as he is one of the few guaranteed to stay the trip and has a victory on this track to his credit. He looks reasonably treated and can see off the attentions of Boxer Beat, who is up to this but has a strike-rate of 1-51 in his career.
