Verdict

John Ferguson is operating at a strike rate of over 30% in the current campaign so the chances of Cry Of Freedom must be respected despite topweight. He reverts to hurdles after looking far from natural on two tries over fences, so this may be something of a confidence booster for him. Tzora was an easy winner here when last seen but the assessor has responded with a swingeing 15lb rise which may prevent the Hill inmate from following up. Jolly Roger also looks too high in the weights so the vote is awarded to SIDNEY MELBOURNE. He's the one contender who remains open to improvement whilst trip and ground will suit too. He's on a fair mark and would be a strong fancy if he could further refine and hone his hurdling technique.
