Verdict

Hyperlink won a couple of times over middle-distances for Mark Johnston on the Flat and is of obvious interest making his hurdling debut for John Ferguson at a relatively lowly level. But Experimentalist and FLAMING ARROW have already shown decent form over timber. The former was second in a Sandown handicap last time but the latter is arguably less exposed and any improvement on his second to the useful Cockney Sparrow at Doncaster, where Burns Night finished tailed off, could see him go one better today.
