Verdict

A tricky hurdles event to start the card and we will give a narrow vote to Different Class, Mightymuller and Injunear may provide most danger. Jonjo O'Neil's seven-year-old is very lightly raced and having shown plenty of ability on his debut, disappointed on his next two outings. However the stable wasn't in very good form at the time and this well bred gelding is given a chance to atone in quite a weak event. Mightymuller drops in trip following a decent run at Fontwell last time and will be hard to keep out of the places. Meanwhile Injunear is the dark horse in the line up. He hasn't raced since April 2004 when a promising fourth in a strong event. He hails from a yard in top form and so should be monitored closely in the market. John Diamond looks the pick of the two Henrietta Knight runners, but we return to Different Class as our idea of the winner.
