Verdict

Dermot Weld has a tremendous record at this meeting over the years and his AYDOUN looks just the type to go well in this open and well contested handicap hurdle. Victoria Bay has shot up the weights but will make a bold bid for the hat-trick, while Doran's River, Hey Little Boy, Mill Quest and Steel Ambition all have claims. The expensive purchase Santiago De Cuba has cost supporters dear the last twice but a bold show is certainly not out of the question this time.
  1. Aydoun
