Verdict

These are a modest bunch but Osmosia has won here over hurdles, though is 3lb higher than when second at Fontwell last month and an infrequent winner nowadays. UPTON MEAD blotted his copybook when pulled up at Fontwell last time but has had a short break and, if returning refreshed, is capable of conceding weight to this lot. Watergate is very well handicapped but has completely lost his way and Doheny Bar was pulled up on his reappearance, though did won over course and distance in March. She's Humble is probably best of the rest.
