Verdict

Paddy Partridge won two selling hurdles last summer but hasn't been seen since June and has never been placed on the Flat. TURJUMAN scored over 1m4f here last month and, as he finished runner-up over this trip at Southwell last year, his ability to stay the distance isn't in doubt. He's given the nod in a poor contest in which Waldsee, who was beaten six lengths by the selection last month, looks held. Almost Gemini is related to a host of winners but showed nothing in four starts on Turf last season including over this trip. Leitrim King has shown ability but has never raced beyond 1m4f and though Pullmen has run in bumpers and will stay he looks too high in the weights.
