In depth

Verdict

Points and bumper winner Master Dee should improve on his third at Doncaster, though he only had a short-head to spare over the equally-unexposed Rhapando. Spyder only found one too good at Southwell and Son Of Suzie made a winning start to his hurdles career over track and trip last month, though has more to do in this under a penalty. SUCH A LEGEND made the odds-on Kilcooley work hard at Market Rasen on only his second hurdles run and, as this stiffer track will suit, can now go one better as all-weather winner Maria's Choice is best watched today.
