Verdict

A decent handicap hurdle which forms the centre-piece of the eight race Hexham card. Ann and Ian Hamilton enjoy saddling winners at one of their local tracks, and the top weighted RUNSWICK ROYAL is faced with an easier assignment than of late, so it's worth chancing that he can give weight and a beating to all of his rivals. A dual winner in 2017, he's admittedly most effective with cut, but tackles rivals here that have raced mainly in lower grade contests. Beyondtemptation is an adorable mare, but she'll struggle from a mark of 120, whilst Master Of Irony is yet to be tested in handicaps. Of the remainder Aiaam Al Namoos has ability and is well treated, but also has question marks to address (well-being), so it is perhaps Sky Khan that is the most viable alternative.
  1. Runswick Royal
  2. Sky Khan
