Verdict

The usual seller to kick off proceedings and one made all the more interesting by the presence of a Barney Curley contender lurking off the bottom perch. Me Fein is certain to attract tremendous interest and the market will obviously provide a most significant clue to his chances of reversing latest placings with TOWER when the pair finished first and third here recently. Me Fein is also much better off at the weights but he is highly unlikely to represent any value and Tower may represent a safer and better value-for-money option, especially after running a solid third to Boomtown at Wincanton last time in open handicap company. Petie McSweetie has a first run in selling class and is accordingly taken seriously whilst another to merit the closest of market watches is Bull Market. The Jones yard are pretty adept at landing a gamble and their inmate has every chance on the best of his limited hurdles form.
