Verdict

Nick Gifford has a strong hand here with three runners, Paddy's Poem looks about the best of those based on his recent effort over C&D and should be in the mix today. Distingo, a Flat winner in his native France, is worth keeping an eye on in his debut for new connections having shown an aptitude for this already. WEEBILL made a pleasing start to his hurdling career at Market Rasen on Boxing and comes here with trainer Olly Murphy enjoying a fine time it lately. He's taken to improve sufficiently on that first showing and land the opener.
