In depth

Verdict

Slipper Satin would have every chance if taking part but was engaged to run at Haydock yesterday. Her absence should leave the way clear for John Ferguson's CERTIFICATION, who opened her account at Wetherby last month and looks capable of following up in this company. Kilcooley won a bumper at this track in November and makes his hurdling bow, but Lord Of Scotland has more experience having won once in six starts over hurdles in France. He makes his debut for new connections today and should go well.
