Verdict

Torta Nel Cielo and What A Dream fought out the finish of novice hurdle at Kelso last time with the former just prevailing. Both can figure on their handicap debuts but preference goes to BALLYMACDUFF. He won over 3m1f at Perth last April and returned to action with a good third over a shorter trip at Kelso recently. He is taken to reverse the form with runner-up Charlie Bucket back over this longer distance and gets the nod. Devotion To Duty is running into form and makes most appeal of Lucinda Russell's trio.
