Verdict

Dance For Julie is very consistent but went up 5lb for finishing runner-up at Aintree in October when Teenage Idol was behind. Hunters Belt landed a novice hurdle on very fast ground here in April and isn't too badly treated. ZAPLAMATION makes his handicap debut after three reasonable efforts and looks to have been found an ideal opportunity to get off the mark. Sure Josie Sure makes the long journey from David Pipe's yard and must be a threat on his lowest mark since landing a Perth handicap in April of last year but Sir Tantallus Hawk will probably be seen to better effect back over fences.
