Verdict

This looks a good opportunity for POP ROCKSTAR to open his chasing account having twice caught the eye in chases moving through the race easily and jumping well. He ran into a progressive sort last time and there don’t look to be any of that ilk in this field. Mahlermade should run a sound race although a greater test of stamina looks to be needed for him to show his best. Plantagenet would be nicely weighted on his hurdles form but has yet to show that he is a proficient jumper over fences and Night Of Sin and Battle Of Ideas are preferred as place chances.
  1. Pop Rockstar
  2. Mahlermade
  3. Battle Of Ideas
