Verdict

A competitive and difficult puzzle to unravel with several having chances and being of interest. With the Ian Williams yard being in good form and always to be respected in handicaps with lightly-raced sorts THEHOSSBEHIND is given a chance to get off the mark in handicaps at his third attempt. Utility certainly looks the sort to do well in this sphere and bounce back from a poor handicap debut while Bold Duke is another who looks as though he can get involved. With River Of Intrigue, What A Diva and Crown Hill all having shown the ability to win a race such as this for the grade this is a decent contest.
  1. Thehossbehind
  2. Utility
  3. Bold Duke
