Verdict

The former Ireland-trained PRIORS GOLD is comfortably the pick on official ratings and on all known form. He's won twice over hurdles and has been in reasonable form on the Polytrack at Wolverhampton this winter so won't fail through lack of fitness and gets the vote. Khazium was beaten almost 20 lengths in a seller here in December and does better on quicker ground while King Of Wing has pulled very hard in his two runs to date and will need to settle better, even in this lowly grade. Loyal Master showed a bit of promise on his debut over timber at Plumpton but ran poorly when fancied for a seller here in December while David Bridgwater tries Nothing To Hide, who hasn't shown much to date, in blinkers for the first time.
