Race Verdict

Deireadh Re is sure to prove popular having turned in a couple of highly credible efforts in decent company in each of his last two starts over hurdles, finishing a good fifth behind Cape Tribulation in a Grade 3 contest at the Aintree Festival most recently. Starting out over fences this afternoon, he will certainly be expected to run well but it is another chasing debutant, SAME DIFFERENCE, that is preferred. The 6-y-o ran out a wide-margin winner of a novice hurdle at Ffos Las last month and edges the vote representing the in-form Twiston-Davies operation. Brass Taz can finish ahead of Al Co to claim minor money.

Selection: Same Difference        Danger: Deireadh Re        Alternative: Brass Tax
