Verdict

ECLAT DES MOTTES is taken to make a winning debut over hurdles following a good run on his sole start in bumpers in France. The selection represents a leading stable and can see off Present In Court who can finish runner-up on his first start over hurdles. Third place can go the way of the unraced Feagreen Native who is a half-brother to a useful performer.
