Verdict

PLATO'S KODE has been in good form over hurdles since his most recent appearance on the Flat and he can register his first win on the AW by taking this competitive looking handicap. The selection is taken to see off Regal Gait who was a winner over this C&D last time out and returns from a break here while Kerrera has shaped as if this step up in trip would suit in the past and she can take third.
  1. Plato's Kode
  2. Regal Gait
  3. Kerrera
