Verdict

A tricky start for punters, with the well thought of The Butcher Said likely to frame the market. He changed hands for €135,000 after a fine second in a Punchestown bumper in the spring but disappointed in that sphere at Sandown last month on debut for this yard. More will surely be in the offing now the hurdles are in play and any support for Warren Greatrex's charge is to be noted. There are plenty here to ensure he's tested. Coolanly won a bumper at Chepstow in good style while Florrie Knox will have learned plenty from a sound run in a decent novice hurdle at Wetherby last time. Quick Pick has potential and was travelling well when brought down at Ayr over this trip last time but there was plenty to admire in the way VINNDICATION rallied to win a Ludlow bumper on debut and that attitude bodes well for Kim Bailey's charge in a contest that is likely to be keenly contested.
  1. Vinndication
