Verdict

Top weight THREE COLOURS RED looks the pick on form and he is taken to record his second victory over hurdles in this staying handicap contest. The selection finished close up in a big field last time and can get the better of the unexposed mare Phoenix Rock who remains open to improvement despite disappointing last time. Western Breeze represents a top stable and can claim third.
  1. Three Colours Red
  2. Phoenix Rock
  3. Western Breeze
