Verdict

A tight but moderate handicap but BENALEX PARK looks the one to be on. Denis Hogan's charge was sent to Musselburgh to gain his only victory over timber and came back to something like that form when a close fourth on the Flat at Killarney a fortnight ago. Theonewiththeleg has won once in 21 starts over hurdles but still manages to find herself at the head of the weights while Annakrista has yet to be placed over hurdles despite five victories on the Flat. Spot The Header has shown a glimmer of ability on occasions but as with so many of these the market is best watched for clues.
