Verdict

MIDNIGHT CHASE can bounce back from a stinker on chasing debut to see off Arctic Echo and Tokpela. Punters will need to erase a lamentable chasing debut from their minds to back Neil Mulholland's charge but he was a sound hurdler and this race looks far easier than his opening engagement over the chase fences. Arctic Echo has winning form with soft ground obtaining though is more than capable on genuinely good going. Tokpela has won five points in Britain having campaigned largely in Hunter events when tried under rules. Maktu is an out and out stayer who should not be inconvenienced by a slog in the mud. Sullomo was taking on the likes of Fair Along over hurdles last term and while the absence of a year is a worry, Charlie Mann is more than capable of having them ready first time out. Vamizi was capable of the odd error over hurdles so hopefully will give the fences a little more respect. Midnight Chase is the pick despite the obvious issues with regard to his latest effort.
