Verdict

It's entirely possible that Market Option and the five-year-old Daliance will show improvement now their attentions are switched to fences. Winning hurdler Marju King is a possibility while Marleno was second over a shorter trip here 12 days ago. He was beaten 20 lengths but the winner has gone in again since. SURE THING has been waiting for the better ground and can make a make a winning return to action. He was in good form last spring over hurdles and this is a natural progression.
