Race Verdict

CALL BACK looks sure to take all the beating receiving weight off his elders. He displayed a fair amount of ability in three bumper starts before finishing third on his hurdling debut at Ludlow 23 days ago and should be able to go one better today if stepping forward from that. Tornade D'estruval, representing last years winning stable, was in the process of running a nice race over fences at Warwick latest prior to a last-fence fall and warrants respect back over timber but Tannerman needs to improve.

Selection: Call Back        Danger: Tornade D'estruval        Alternative: Tannerman
