Verdict

POTTERS LEGEND contested a decent novice handicap chase over 2m5f here last time out and acquitted himself well having been hampered at a crucial stage. The selection was a useful novice hurdler over 3m last year and shapes as if this step up in trip over fences will suit. Mall Dini was victorious over hurdles at this meeting in 2016 and is another who looks likely to appreciate the extra distance here, with a good jockey in the saddle he is taken to finish second while Squouateur is another to be respected from a yard that had three winners on the opening day of this meeting.
  1. Potters Legend
  2. Mall Dini
  3. Squouateur
