Race Verdict

NELSON DU RONCERAY is equally proficient over hurdles and fences and in some ways it's rather disappointing to see him descend to selling grade. However, this does offer the opportunity of an eighth career success as he arrives on the back of a respectable runner-up effort at Perth over fences recently. Realignment would be a major danger at his best but is not proving the most reliable and was tailed off when a short-priced favourite at Sedgefield last time. Hoar Frost is only 1-27 over hurdles but the mare certainly makes the shortlist on the best of her form.

Selection: Nelson du Ronceray        Danger: Realignment        Alternative: Hoar Frost
