Verdict

Dual bumper winner SPIRIT OF SHANKLY was thrown in at the deep end on his hurdling debut in a Listed race at Kempton but came out of the test with honour intact. He found only the experienced Hawkhill and Princely Player too good but was only a length behind the winner and a repeat of that effort should suffice here. It's hard to see sixth Zarzal reversing the form and a bigger danger may be Karazhan, who won a Bangor bumper last month and has obvious scope. Flying Phoenix was second in a Stratford handicap last month but is likely to find a few of these too good and Deceptive was well beaten at Worcester after finishing second at Huntingdon. The others have some improving to do.
