Race Verdict

SOUTH STACK is expected to put back-to-back victories together in this handicap hurdle finale having escaped a penalty for scoring in a conditional jockeys' event at Towcester last week. A similar performance should suffice off this unchanged mark but keep an eye on the in-form Fashion Week, who is up 8lb for his successful Newton Abbot exploits last time, and Bennys Well, who may just fare better in the first-time cheekpieces.

Selection: South Stack        Danger: Fashion Week        Alternative: Bennys Well
