Verdict

This looks the weaker of the two divisions. Edward Elgar would be a fitting winner for Andrew Thornton in the race named after him, and we wish him well in retirement. He's got two ways of going, but if he's got out of bed the right side, will have a chance. Anton Dolin has a similar profile and might hit the places, but the two that would be interesting if attracting support would be Irish raider Peggy's Acre and HOPONANDSEE, having his first run for Nigel Twiston-Davies today. In the lat 12 months he's 4-12 with them first time up from other yards, and on that, he gets the vote.
  1. Hoponandsee
  2. Anton Dolin
  3. Edward Elgar
