Race Verdict

Bocamix has been in decent form over hurdles this year, winning two of his five starts, and makes plenty of appeal now sent chasing, but KARINGA QUEEN is preferred representing a Gordon Elliott stable who do particularly well with their runners here. The Karinga Bay mare emerged with plenty of credit when fifth in a 2m7f chase on her debut for this yard at Downpatrick last Friday and she is entitled to strip fitter for that first run in over three months. Rawaaj isn't the most consistent but would have a chance if finding top gear.

Selection: Karinga Queen        Danger: Bocamix        Alternative: Rawaaj
