      Verdict

      POLO THE MUMM got his head back in front over today’s trip at Taunton recently. He’s not the most consistent but a similar effort should see Alexandra Dunn’s charge go close again, especially with today’s opposition struggling for form. Ortenzia has disappointed since scoring at Bangor in October though Sir Dylan can race off a lower mark back over the smaller obstacles. Primogeniture has yet to win over hurdles.
