Verdict

A low grade finale in which we wrestle with the age old dilemma of recent form versus the hope of an upturn in fortunes. Phil Kirby saddles a trio of runners with both Zig Zag and Richard Strauss bidding to build upon fair efforts at Catterick, and on hurdles ratings alone, either is capable of profiting in this grade. Druid's Diamond and Trautmann aren't overly convincing, but filled the frame behind Wildomar at Wolverhampton recently. King's Coinage is essentially better than these rivals, but needs to prove he still wants to deliver the goods, so we'll take aim at the filly DYNA MIGHT in the hope that she can reproduce her past C&D winning form.
  1. Dyna Might
  2. Zig Zag
