Verdict

Although a number of these horses have been in fair form in point-to-points lately including the revitalised front running pair Shimla Dawn and Express Du Berlais, the race won by the admirable veteran Creevytennant at Perth 11 days ago is the most striking form-line available. Both runner up DOUBLE WHAMMY and the third Kilbree Kid can be expected to be much stronger for those fine comeback efforts, with the selection also a winner on this very day in 2017 in the feature Class 3 Ayton Castle Handicap Chase.
  1. Double Whammy
  2. Kilbree Kid
  3. Express Du Berlais
