Adams Park will likely finish closer today having been well beaten when third at Market Rasen on his hurdling bow. But WEINBERG is preferred despite disappointing when fading badly after the last at Aintree on his latest start as Amy Murphy’s charge finished a creditable second at Hexham on his earlier hurdling debut with Enforcement well beaten. Sheriff has won three times on the Flat and is rated higher in that code than fellow hurdling newcomers Go Now Go Now, Parmenter and Red Miracle.
