Race Verdict

FENNEY MILL has not shown a great deal in her three runs over hurdles to date but she could prove capable of much better now making her handicap debut off a lowly mark of 80. Loughalder and Draco Boy are also considered on their respective introductions to the handicap division. Kayfton Pete faded late on over 2m6f at Newton Abbot last week but the drop to 2m4f will suit him and it would be no surprise to see him go close.

Selection: Fenney Mill        Danger: Draco Boy        Alternative: Kayfton Pete
