Race Verdict

SPEED STEED gained an overdue first success over hurdles when winning over 2m at Towcester last month and with that confidence boosting success under his belt, he can be expected to play a leading role again. Saltagioo has been struggling of late but he is beginning to look well handicapped and he could figure if returning to anything like his best form. Back over hurdles on his return to action, Grand Lahou is given a chance off what could prove to be a decent handicap mark.

Selection: Speed Steed        Danger: Walden Prince        Alternative: Grand Lahou
