Verdict

Hardly a closing event to get the pulse racing and it should present a good opportunity for URBANIST to follow up his Exeter chase win returned to hurdles off the same mark. He’s now found his feet with the excellent Dr Richard Newland yard and could well build up a sequence. Dangers are a little thin on the ground although Gambling Gamut looks capable of better in handicaps as he is only lightly-raced and has some progress left in him. Both Goodnitesweetheart and Quarry Lami were winners on their last appearances but have lengthy absences to overcome to follow up. There may well be a bigger performance in Tigeralley yet over this longer trip if she jumps better this time.
  1. Urbanist
  2. Gambling Gamut
  3. Goodnitesweetheart
