Verdict

Another high-quality turnout in which Get Me Out Of Here and Brampour are weighted to finished upsides after finishing one-two on their respective seasonal reappearances. The former is taken to confirm placings though and also enjoys a fitness advantage over OSCAR WHISKY. However, the Henderson contender is a really top-notch contender and faces his optimum trip on this first run of the new campaign. He remains the one to beat on the best of his form and can score before going on to enjoy another successful campaign. The 2012 Scottish Champion Hurdle winner, Raya Star, continues to progress with racing and deserves a shot at this level. He will certainly not be inconvenienced by the soft ground as he scored under such conditions when landing The Ladbroke in 2011.
