Verdict

A big field go to post here and it looks quite an interesting and competitive race of its type for the track. Lad Of Luck makes his hurdles debut having won convincingly on his only bumper start and he’s worth watching in the market and First Du Charmil looks likely to come on for his last run. Both Turtle Wars and Maire Banrigh are expected to run better than when disappointing last time out while Arian will appreciate this sharper 2m. At a price though LEAPAWAY is given a chance here in a race that should be well run and he showed by the way that he travelled into a Newbury race last time out that he could win a race like this.
  1. Leapaway
  2. Turtle Wars
  3. Lad Of Luck
