Verdict

Assuming he takes to hurdling, EARLY DOORS should be able to make a wining debut over timber. His bumper form is strong and he looks a good prospect for his leading owner, who also has another interesting contender in Plouios. Juliespaddockwalk was an expensive purchase for her successful team and should be noted in the betting market, while First Class Return and Niven are others to consider.
  1. Early Doors
  2. Juliespaddockwalk
  3. Plouios
