      Verdict

      SHIMBA HILLS returns to hurdling on a very lenient mark and Jonathan Burke is a very interesting jockey booking for Lawney Hill’s charge. Sixties Secret is also slipping down the weights and showed a bit more in a seller here last month. Stormingin was third at Wincanton last time but still beaten almost 30 lengths while Sadma’s surprise victory at Hereford is not working out. Market Rasen third Scrutinise is more interesting with top weight Vicenzo Mio probably best of the rest.
