Race Verdict

HAWKHILL recorded a comfortable victory over this trip at Huntingdon earlier in the month and looks capable of defying a penalty to land the double. The main danger appears to be Swaledale Lad, who has run two creditable races since being switched to hurdles and was beaten by little over two lengths on soft ground over C&D in December. Saints And Sinners shaped with promise in a course bumper last time and is respected on his hurdles bow.

Selection: Hawkhill        Danger: Swaledale Lad        Alternative: Saints And Sinners
