Haul Us In (5/2), Lastin' Memories (7/2), Another Mattie (15/2), Graystown (15/2), Barrys Jack (8/1), Only Orvieto (8/1), Road To Gold (11/1), Xpo Universel (20/1), Champagne To Go (33/1), Maraweh (40/1)

Verdict

HAUL US IN can complete her hat-trick by taking this handicap hurdle for trainer Lucinda Russell. The selection has run well over this trip in the past and is taken to get the better of long standing maiden Xpo Universel who is making just his second appearance for this yard having transferred from France. Of the remainder the drop in trip should suit Only Oriveto and she can finish third today.
