Verdict

A tricky little handicap as several appear to have decent claims. Open Hearted probably needed the run when third on his chasing debut at Newbury and won't be fazed by the switch back to hurdles. He has a touch of class and makes more appeal than stablemate Minella Class. GOD'S OWN appreciated the step up in distance and good ground at Musselburgh and won with his head in his chest. This will be his first handicap but he looks fairly treated and can get the better of last month's course and distance Baby Shine. Tante Sissi has only had one run so far this term but has a chance on her best form while Massini Lotto won at Doncaster earlier this month and looks a better bet than Andhaar and the inconsistent Greenlaw.
