Verdict

There promises to be plenty of incident in a 15-runner beginners' chase and the ones to focus on are Aretesone, Swift, Solar Heat, Scotch Beg, Golden Flowerpower, Canny Tom, Ardera Cross and KNOCKRAHA KING. The selection finished in front of Canny Tom when just touched off on his chasing debut and can go one better.
  1. Knockraha King
  2. Canny Tom
  3. Scotch Beg
