Verdict

A maiden hurdle which promises to be a good source of future winners. Plenty of the leading stables in the South are represented by young horses who have the potential to do better with more experience. Good Man Pat has had a few chances already this year, but probably stepped forward a fraction in handicap company latest, but there's just a nagging doubt lurking as to exactly what he will find in the heat of battle. Oakley Hall posted a pleasing hurdles debut at this track last month and should be thereabouts assuming he stays, whilst Settie Hill (eighth in that contest) wasn't at all knocked about. The likes of Puppet Warrior, Stage Summit and Robin Waters all clearly possess ability, but a token selection in a tough opening contest is CLONDAW NATIVE. Stuart Edmunds Golan gelding is progressing steadily over hurdles, and with form on a similar right handed track (Huntingdon) already recorded, should appreciate today's extra yardage (further 2f).
  1. Clondaw Native
  2. Robin Waters
