In depth

Verdict

A Tale Of Intrigue was second over course and distance in October but recent runs have been over further and he looks a stayer in the making. BENZANNO and Dubawi Island were both decent performers on the Flat. The former had the better Turf form and a higher rating so is taken to make a winning start over timber in a largely uncompetitive maiden hurdle in which those with experience already look exposed. Chepstow fifth El Macca may be the best of them.
