Verdict

The two previous winners can dominate this novice hurdle with preference for ESPRIT DU LARGE who performed well when fourth in a Grade 2 contest last time out. He looks capable of seeing off Newtown Boy who has had wind surgery since suffering an odds-on defeat last time out. Of the remainder The Bunnyman was running well prior to falling late on when debuting over hurdles last time and he can finish third.
  1. Esprit Du Large
  2. Newtown Boy
  3. The Bunnyman
