Verdict

The second division of this handicap hurdle looks a little more competitive than the first division with several having decent claims. It would be no surprise to see lightly-raced course and distance winner Vintage Tea leaves his Plumpton reappearance well behind while Thegaygardener is capable of running well fresh. Murcar was second at Southwell earlier this month and Get Home Now has been knocking on the door while George Woolf is a danger dropping back in distance. High Ville and penalised Southwell scorer Jewel In the Sun are others worthy of respect but we're loather to desert MY LAD PERCY after back-to-back victories at Worcester and over today's track and trip. Patrick Corbett's claim takes care of a further 6lb weight rise and a hat-trick beckons.
