Verdict

Platinum won over hurdles when last on the track in 2011 but his rating on the Flat is based on earlier form in France. Stablemate Elspeth's Boy has shown little since scoring at Haydock last year and Yourinthewill beat lesser rivals at this track last time. Honey Of A Kitten's chances are improved by an apprentice's 7lb claim and Malindi has the beating of Ferryview Place on today's terms. However, HURRICANE SPIRIT landed a double in similar company before going very close in a handicap at Kempton on Monday and he gets the vote competing back at this level.
