Verdict

Sergeant Mattie has landed the odds with a bit to spare on his last couple of outings including over track and trip last time. He has claims along with Strollawaynow, well beaten in Graded company at Sandown last time but a winner at Exeter in January. COUNT DANILO was cruising in the lead when falling at Haydock recently. An earlier winner at Fakenham, David Pipe's charge gets the nod to return to winning ways with a clear round. The remainder look up against it though bumper winner Ellnando Queen made the frame on her hurdling bow and could prove the best of them.
