    Verdict

    Only a couple of these make any appeal. Bumper winner Kaloci is penalised for winning in heavy going over hurdles at Leicester recently. She’ll go well again but is conceding plenty of weight to the four-year-old HARMONISE. The latter was in the process of running a big race at Ascot on her hurdling bow when brought down at the last and may prove good enough in this with normal luck in-running. Both Diva Du Maquis and Tierra Verde have shown some ability in bumpers but have struggled over timber so far while Chloe's Court makes her hurdling debut.
