Verdict

An interesting contest, and a race which will throw up more than it's fair share of future winners. Milan Of Crystal arrives seeking a hat-trick, and whilst this represents a much tougher assignment, she's proved herself as an improving mare, so deserves much respect. The likes of Grand Turina, War Creation and Argent Knight have all of the required attributes to be successful in handicap company over hurdles, and it's still early days in this grade for that trio of horses. However, the claims of last week's Exeter winner CAVE TOP are all too obvious, and whilst he has extra yardage to gallop over this afternoon, he shouldn't have any real troubles at this much less demanding track, and is capable of doubling up for Oliver Greenall.
