Verdict

Another tough handicap with plenty of horses holding chances but a tentative vote goes to POSH BIRD ahead of Hearthstaed Dream and Santa's Son. The selection has been running well of late and certainly holding her form well. Her latest run behind a very good horse of Nicky Henderson's reads well in the context of this. She has risen in the handicap due to her consistency but is in very good form and may well run a big race at a nice price. Hearthstead Dream is another horse holding his form well and represents a yard that do very well here. His latest run over course and distance was a decent effort when he was doing his best work at the latter end of the race. If they go a good gallop today which they probably will he could come late and fast and take this. Santa's Son is a gritty front runner and has been rated far higher in the past especially over fences. If allowed to dominate if could take some catching. Others to note in the race are Halezdine, Corkage and Los Nadis but the selection is Posh Bird.
