Verdict

DON'T STOP ME NOW is proving a useful dual purpose filly for Howard Johnson and should score again here ahead of Los Nadis and Danzatrice. Twice a winner of some fair looking novice hurdles this winter the selection was going well on the level before that scoring in a maiden at Great Leighs before switching codes. Stamina should be no problem here and her mark looks on the low side given her progressive profile. Los Nadis is a more than useful handicap hurdler who wasn't far beaten by Binocluar in November. Again he will have no problems with stamina, he is obviously in good heart and his mark is fair having been close off it last season. Danzatrice was beaten by the selection on there last meeting but that came over hurdles. She does like it here and was a winner over slightly shorter trip at this circuit off a mark just two pounds higher last season but she does look to have something to find to win. Amir Pasha looks a little out classed on hurdles form but could feature in the shake up so instead we side with Don't Stop Me Now to score.
