Verdict

There are a few interesting types in this not least the well backed Some Can Dance but he has yet to prove that he stays this trip against a few that are proven stayers. Gardiners Hill has been in fine form over fences and more recently winning over hurdles at Hereford appearing to need all the near 3m2f trip begging the question will he be quick enough around this sharper test. Both Iwilldoit and Treasure Dillon have been progressing steadily over hurdles and look as though they are worthy of respect in this company. TRANSPENNINE STAR ran a sound race on his return last time and that should have set him up for this especially equipped with cheekpieces now (ran well in them on the Flat).
  1. Transpennine Star
  2. Treasure Dillon
  3. Gardiners Hill
