Verdict

RAVEN'S TOWER will be better for a recent outing following a mid-term break and can get his head back in front with his promising conditional rider claiming a useful 7lb. There are plenty of dangers, including Mr Antolini who is fairly handicapped on the pick of hs hurdles form as he switches back from chasing. Applesandpierres bounced back to form in heavy ground last time but the handicapper has had his say, while such as Jacbequick, Theo and Air Horse One are not out if it if in the mood.
  1. Raven's Tower
  2. Mr Antolini
  3. Jacbequick
