Verdict

LORD ERSKINE was patiently ridden before comfortably landing a handicap hurdle at Sligo yesterday and is likely to be a warm order if getting in to the race off a 6lb penalty, with the second place mare The Last Indian the biggest danger. If neither make the race, the Gavin Cromwell yard can go close with Ejayteekay while the J P McManus-owned Feeling The Love and Hide The Biscuit are better than their last starts and are capable of better efforts in this company.
  1. Lord Erskine
  2. The Last Indian
  3. Ejayteekay
