Verdict

BURROWS EDGE has to shoulder a penalty but should be up to the task. He looks very progressive having beaten more-experienced rivals at Market Rasen last time, despite still showing signs of inexperience. Shivermetimbers ran his best race so far over hurdles last time at Ludlow but was still no match for an easy winner and may have to settle for a place again. Mr Washington has won a point and been placed in a bumper but none of the others make much appeal.
