Verdict

Barizan didn't stay 2m4f at Worcester last time so the Swinton Hurdle second might be worth opposing here. Local Hero last won at this track in 2012 off a 7lb higher mark and has been in decent form on the Flat lately. He's sure to run well and Street Entertainer came right back to form at Fontwell, though has been raised 9lb for his troubles. Australia Day will ensure a strong gallop but hasn't won over hurdles since 2010 and we fancy GOLD FUTURES to continue on an upward curve by completing the hat-trick. This is easiest his toughest task to date but he'll be staying on up the straight, which may not be the case with some of the others. Lucky Landing is better over fences.
