Verdict

RIO QUINTO made an impressive debut over timber in winning a maiden hurdle here over 2m4f last month and can build on that now upped in trip. He was already on top when his nearest rival departed the scene late on last time and is fancied to score for the excellent Olly Murphy / Richard Johnson axis once again. Oscar Star was also a winner last time out and isn't overlooked lightly while Earlshill has shown some promise in this sphere. Likewise, Strawberry Spirit was outrunning a big price on her hurdling bow at Huntingdon before unseating 10 days ago and could have a role to play.
  1. Rio Quinto
  2. Oscar Star
  3. Earlshill
