Verdict

Since unseating his rider when odds-on at Stratford in October, useful Flat performer DAWN TWISTER has made steady progress over hurdles winning easily at Fontwell last time. He may just have a bit more natural speed than the unbeaten Pendra, who did win over C&D on his hurdles bow but is taking on stronger opposition this afternoon. Workbench looked as though he was starting to get the hang of things when fifth at Taunton last time and Leviathan, a winning miler on the level, is worth noting on his first start for Venetia Williams.
