Verdict

Nicky Henerson's EL KALDOUN has been brought along steadily and may be ready to claim his first win over hurdles. The five-year-old ran a fair race last time out at Kempton on his reappearance and should be all the better for that outing. Floating Rock is another who has been brought on quietly and he showed his well being when finishing a good second at Taunton last time. He is going the right way and should soon be winning. Fort Denison has some fair form on the Flat and showed his liking for hurdles when runner-up last time out at Plumpton. He could go well.
  1. El Kaldoun
  2. Floating Rock
  3. Fort Denison
