Verdict

A race largely full of unknown horses, but a one which promises to throw up plenty of future winners. Without a deep and extensive knowledge of point-to-point form, stakes are probably best kept to a bare minimum, but some of the more obvious looking contenders would include, Cracking Destiny and AINCHEA. On pedigree, the selection looks more than capable of making his mark both in the present moment, and in the future, and that's probably reflected in his €155,000 purchase price as a three-year-old in 2016. A brother to the very useful bumper and hurdles winner One Track Mind, he now carries the silks of prominent jumps owners, and looks a potentially useful sort on paper for trainer Colin Tizzard to go to war with.
