In depth

Verdict

Border Station wasn't beaten far in a maiden hurdle over a slightly longer trip here last time but has had plenty of chances over obstacles. Super Duplex won on the Polytrack last week and could figure under a 10lb claimer while Plumpton third Rachael's Ruby is unexposed over timber. LISTEN AND LEARN has yet to reproduce his useful bumper form over hurdles but McCoy keeps faith with him in this ordinary handicap and he's given a final chance. Pampelonne and Conigre have the ability to figure but aren't entirely reliable.
