Verdict

The Gordon Elliott yard have sent in five handicap hurdle winners at this meeting in the last four years from 21 runners giving the operation a 24% strike rate and their Cheveley Park-owned, LETHAL STEPS can add to his win at Sligo in April. The improving four-year-old can land the spoils ahead of his main challengers, Blottos, formerly with Sue Smith, the luckless, Trans Wood and the Joseph O'Brien-trained, Gold Seal.
  1. Lethal Steps
