Verdict

Tim Vaughan sends the hat-trick seeking BENNACHIE on the long journey north from the Vale Of Glamorgan (8 from 50; 16% here since 2005), and whilst respectful to the other connections, must be delighted to see his improving Milan gelding presented with another golden winning opportunity. Whilst some of the others aren't wholly exposed over fences (i.e. Royal Mandate, Alfiboy and Bafana Blue), equally they weren't the most progressive of hurdlers either. The now Jamie Snowden trained Next Level rates as the chief threat to the selection.
  1. Bennachie
  2. Next Level
