Verdict

Four Nations won a Goodwood handicap on the Flat for Amanda Perrett in 2011 and wouldn't have to be a world-beater to make a winning start over hurdles in this. But we'll stick with experience and put forward FLYING PHOENIX, who was second in a handicap at Stratford last October and has been kept ticking over on the Polytrack. Red Admirable was a beaten favourite over 2m4f at Ffos Las last month but, as a former pointer, the drop in distance here might not do him any favours and the others have shown little so far.
