Verdict

BLAZER'S MILL got off the mark at the first time of asking under Rules when he claimed a bumper at Fontwell in nice fashion. He can follow that up with success over hurdles here as he looks to be a smart prospect. Marown is also looking to add to his bumper success at Newcastle and will go close to doing that on his hurdles debut, while County Fair is worth taking to fill the placings on his switch to hurdling.
  1. Blazer's Mill
  2. Marown
  3. County Fair
