Verdict

WAY OUT WEST was a facile 23L winner last week, and has a great opportunity to follow up under a penalty, so is hard to ignore. Pointed And Sharp wasn't one to trust over hurdles, but appears a reformed character of late, and is respected in his hat-trick bid, and is the main danger, ahead of Malangen.
  1. Way Out West
  2. Pointed And Sharp
  3. Malangen
