Verdict

The two with the potential to be better than this grade are the unbeaten UNCLE ALASTAIR and Dunly, and although there's little between them on form, the former gets the nod with the switch to hurdles likely to see him in an even better light. He could be a useful prospect among the Northern hurdlers this year and can take this en route to better things. Dunly should keep him honest though, and he too has plenty more to come. Quick Pick and Victoria Says can battle out the minor money.
  1. Uncle Alastair
  2. Dunly
  3. Quick Pick
