Verdict

There may be six runners in this but only three look to have any chance of winning. Edene D’arc won a Gowran maiden last month before running in a Grade 3 at Limerick but she may be better over a bit further. Off The Hook is a consistent sort who was far from disgraced when fourth in a Listed handicap at Newbury last time. However, she’s another for whom 2m around here on good ground may not be far enough. VISION DE PUY is having a first run for Dan Skelton but she was very impressive when making a winning debut at Auteuil in October and, only four, could develop into a smart hurdler.
