Verdict

CASUAL STYLE gets the nod in the opener, where Painted Sky and Phoenix Enforcer can also go well. The last-named is trained by the shrewd George Baker, who applies blinkers to his charge for the first time tonight. Recent efforts have been less than encouraging, but she has enough ability to win a couple of sellers on the Flat last summer so the headgear might help to bring that out over hurdles. Painted Sky won a selling handicap hurdle at Plumpton last month and is tried over this shorter trip again this evening. He is down 2lbs in the ratings but goes well at the track and the yard is still in superb form, so he is respected. Trip and ground suit Zizou, who is well up to winning in this grade but who has been out of sorts lately and has a bit to prove and we prefer Casual Style. The David Pipe-trained filly showed the most promising recent form of any of these when runner-up at Stratford in a similar contest last time and with conditions in her favour a repeat performance may be good enough to get her home in front.
