Verdict

Daylami Dreams, Smart John and Caged Tiger make most appeal in this contest and the vote is given to Smart John. The selection chased home Swampy Blue at Ludlow last time, form that reads well in the context of this race. He was a decent sort on the flat and he looks primed to win his first race over hurdles. Daylami Dreams has not been seen out since December and although this is slightly easier than his most recent assignment, he looks to have a little to find to beat our choice. Caged Tiger arrives here race fit but he is not the most reliable. However, he will relish this fast ground and if he is on one of his going days he can get competitive. Wee George is bred to be suited by a longer trip and he looks opposable, which returns us to Smart John as the one to be on.
