Verdict

This won't take much winning so we'll take a chance that AMIRLI fares better over hurdles second time around. Alistair Whillans' gelding has been in very good form in staying races on the Flat at Musselburgh recently and looks a reformed character. Larkhall has only run once over hurdles so far but has won off a higher mark over fences. Vic's Last Stand tries a new trip but is gradually improving and Magnolia Ridge couldn't be discounted if on a going day.
