Verdict

With all due respect to connections, this rates as a rather dismal looking contest. Therefore, it's best not to overthink things, and focus purely upon those horses in form. Canford Thompson fits that bill in one respect, but his sole career success came over hurdles at Wetherby in October 2016 when just about gifted the race at the start. Therefore, we'll stick with Friday's Southwell winner AVOCET. She didn't appear to be the most straightforward mare in the world despite scooting clear, but she's with a fast emerging trainer, and has the right man aboard in the shape of the AW 'King' Luke Morris if a persuader or two needs to be delivered.
  1. Avocet
  2. Canford Thompson
  3. Too Many Shots
