Verdict

The Ben Pauling yard have certainly perked up of late with the trainer two-handed in this handicap hurdle with Fawsley Spirit and ESPOIR DE LOIRE, the latter looking the much better of the duo after his Warwick win which saw him score with a bit in hand. Manning Estate won well enough at Doncaster and isn’t harshly treated for his handicap debut over a trip he ought to appreciate. Steel Bob had a tough race last time but can’t be left out of this and neither can Victarion who ran well for a fair way last time over 3m, this distance will suit him far better.
