Verdict

It is worth chancing the smart bumper performer JUST A STING on this, his hurdles debut. He showed plenty of ability on the level and should relish this greater test of stamina. The best hurdles form to date belongs to Bob Mahler who will surely be involved in the finish but he threw away a win at Ffos Las and now has to prove his resolution in a finish. Mance Rayder did everything wrong on his lone race at Warwick but still won so is open to plenty of improvement and must be considered.
  1. Just A Sting
  2. Bob Mahler
  3. Mance Rayder
