Verdict

It's difficult to oppose OUTOFTHISWORLD here. Harry Fry's mare, a winning bumper on her debut at Market Rasen last year, stumbled and fell on her hurdling debut on the Lincolnshire track before making amends with a smooth victory on a return visit last month. There's much more to come and her stable remain in fine form. Pardon Me showed a bit of potential in bumpers and though beaten 15 lengths on her hurdles debut at Uttoxeter will have come on nicely for the experience and will appreciate the longer trip. Midnightreferendum looks the main threat in receipt of 7lb as she won a Warwick bumper in February before an excellent second in a Grade 2 bumper at Aintree. She wasn't given a hard introduction to hurdles at Chepstow when jumping indifferently but that should have brought her on enough to get competitive here. The remainder with experience have shown very little.
