Verdict

COOK THE BOOKS showed promise when making his debut under Rules and he can get off the mark at the second attempt over hurdles with victory in this big field novices' event. The selection represents a top yard and he can see off his rivals with Equus Dancer, a dual bumper winner last season capable of taking second spot ahead of Jour A La Plage who should appreciate this step up in distance switched to hurdles.
