Race Verdict

GROUSE LODGE is tough to oppose in this maiden hurdle for Donald McCain and is expected to confirm a promising start here last month when justifying favouritism in a bumper over 2m1f. The Well Chosen gelding will have been well schooled for this at home and can get the better of Optimist, who is yet to score in this sphere for Brian Ellison. Gwladys Street and Witch Way might be forced to settle for supporting roles.

Selection: Grouse Lodge        Danger: Optimist        Alternative: Gwladys Street
