Verdict

Duty Free is a useful benchmark in this Maiden Hurdle but after a much improved effort last time out FLICHLY is expected to progress again and get off the mark while Wicked Streak should also feature. Lightly raced after just three starts the pick vastly improved on his first two runs, both of which he needed, to find just the one too good on his latest. This race looks easier and this top yard should have him heading in the right direction from now on. Duty Free is rated 113 and ran well in handicap company last time. He doesn't always find a great deal in the finish but he is a live contender in this line-up. Wicked Streak slightly improved in two bumper runs last year and again in a couple of runs again in that sphere this term. He's proved he's consistent and wouldn't have to find a great deal more to win on his hurdles bow. Ace High Blue should be in the mix on the pick of his form but might be exposed in this company which leaves Flichly as a solid pick.
