Verdict

A modest turnout in which it's hard to make a case for Sibling Rivalry or Gulfport, apart from the latter's connections. Barliffey is probably best watched after a 523-day absence but do take careful note if the money comes for him after such as lengthy lay-off. Musnad should be cherry-ripe here after running eighth of 11 in a Doncaster handicap last Saturday on the level and has obvious claims but the 8lb he has to concede to FORSTER STREET just swings the pendulum in favour of the latter. The Tim Easterby inmate didn't show up too badly in juvenile hurdles last year and delivered an adequate performance back on the Polytrack when a respectable fifth of 12 at Wolverhampton recently. He may have too much toe for his opponents, especially as it's hard to see where the pace is coming from.
