Race Verdict

IT WAS ME, a multiple winner between the flags, landed a Towcester hunters' chase in good style last month and a reproduction of that effort would probably make him tough to beat this evening. Macdougal has been running well in point-to-points and he should not be left out of calculations. The same comments also apply to Tenawa. Galbally King also makes some appeal on the pick of his point-to-point form.

Selection: It Was Me        Danger: Macdougal        Alternative: Tenawa
