In depth

Verdict

Wild Diamond finished tailed off behind Akdam on his hurdling debut at Hexham and has done little since. Akdam is a consistent sort but thoroughly exposed now and may be vulnerable giving weight to the two newcomers. Gold Chain won a maiden for Clive Cox at Lingfield in September but SEASIDE ROCK is preferred as the winning miler's speed should be an asset around here.
