      Verdict

      This is an unusual departure from the norm for Bohemian Rhapsody, who has been running over hurdles and on the Flat. He finished third over 1m4f at Doncaster last month so will lack nothing in fitness. HERBERT PARK was a promising hurdler for David Pipe at one time and won a Mixed Open between the flags for new connections in February. He might have a future in point-to-points and hunter chases and makes more appeal than Creative Inerta and Palmaria. Uncle Jimmy is possibly a light of former days judged on his run at Newbury.
