Verdict

IMPACT FACTOR has put in a couple of sound efforts since joining this stable and he can go one better than on each of those occasions in this maiden hurdle. The selection chased home the classy Getabird who runs in the previous race here last time out and can see off Warlike Intent who was the winner of a bumper on rules debut and can finish second on his first outing over hurdles. Flat winner Kesselring can finish third on his debut for this leading stable while the well-bred Monition is another of interest on his racecourse debut.
