Verdict

LUCKY FLIGHT will be a short price to follow up a recent course and distance victory and should take all the beating with Stephen Mulqueen’s claim halving his penalty. Wilhelm Vonvenster could be the one for forecast-backers under Brian Hughes as he was too keen on his hurdling debut at Perth and wasn’t given a hard time in the closing stages. It’s difficult to make a strong case for many of the others.
