Verdict

BLACKROD is the most progressive sort in this field so, if the draw doesn't scupper him, he has an excellent chance to land a hat-trick and pick up a decent prize in the process. His owner, David Armstrong, also has a live chance with Bickerstaffe, while the thriving Strike Red is another one who could make his presence felt if things drop right.

  1. BLACKROD
