Verdict

DANNY KIRWAN impressed when making his debut at Kempton earlier this year and he is taken to maintain his unbeaten record and in the process provide trainer Paul Nicholls with a win in this Grade 2 bumper. Sevarano, another to impress on debut can finish runner-up while Pym who finished runner-up to the selection at Kempton can get the better of Cheltenham ninth Mercy Mercy Me to claim third.
  1. Danny Kirwan
