Verdict

LEADER'S CHOICE can make a winning handicap debut in this highly competitive looking handicap chase. The selection's best effort in beginners contests came over 2m6f and having placed over 3m as a hurdler this step up in trip can see her register a first victory over fences at the chief expense of Dinnie's Vinnie who has placed on each of his last five starts. The long absent Milanesque regsitered his sole victory over C&D and can claim third in this contest.
  1. Leader's Choice
  2. Dinnie's Vinnie
  3. Milanesque
