Verdict

Donald McCain negates Mulligan's Man's double penalty by putting up 10lb claimer Paul O'Brien but there's a just a worry that the faster ground won't suit the winning pointer and bumper. Similar concerns also surround Dotties Dilema, who has an almost identical profile while Benefit Of Youth makes his hurdling bow having proved inconsistent in bumpers. SEA CHANGE won on the Polytrack for Jeremy Noseda in 2010 and had a couple of runs over hurdles for David Pipe last year. Now with Jim Goldie, he ran a better race on the Flat at Ayr last month and could be a bit of value in this.
