Verdict

A very low key start to proceedings and hurdling debutant Highlife Dancer must have every chance of making a winning start. He rattled up a hat-trick on fast ground on the Flat at the start of the summer, though has been out of sorts recently. OSORIOS TRIAL has the best hurdles form so is probably the one to beat as he was taking on much stronger opposition in a Stratford handicap nine days ago. Portway Flyer hinted at ability at Huntingdon at the start of the year but may just need this.
