Fourteen runs since last win in 2014. 8/1, third of 5 in handicap hurdle at Taunton (23.9f, heavy) 124 days ago. Off 124 days. Poor on latest start in this sphere and he's opposable.

Verdict

SHARJA SILK failed to justify favouritism when competing against his own age group over a similar trip at Doncaster last time but is a potential improver now taking on older horses in receipt of a weight-for-age allowance. Hawridge Flyer could feasibly step up on his latest effort at Newbury now granted a stiffer test of stamina and dropped in grade, while Garbanzo commands plenty of respect on the back of his 1m4f romp at Doncaster, although he now has a 7lb rise to contend with.

Verdict

The consistent HAWRIDGE FLYER gets the nod following a string of solid efforts in defeat. Conditions here will be in his favour and the 4-y-o is marginally preferred to Sharja Silk, who remains a maiden but ought to pick up a race before long. Rolling Maul isn't one to set your watch by but will be a danger to all if on-song and Nabhan is also capable of taking a hand in the finish.
