Race Verdict

Grand Lahou is on a hat-trick following wins in plating class at Perth and Market Rasen and he looks sure to go well. However, it might pay to side with PRAXITELES. He has been struggling on the Flat of late but the return to hurdles could reignite his enthusiasm and he will take all the beating if putting his best foot forward. Dancewiththedevil could fare best of the others.

Selection: Praxiteles        Danger: Grand Lahou        Alternative: Dancewiththedevil
