Verdict

The Gordon Elliott hurdlers are in fine form currently with the likes of Graineyhill, Elysian Plains and Dinons all winning within the least week and ASKARI can continue the winning thread here on handicap debut. Another handicap debutante of note is Loughaderra Flame who can go well in first-time cheekpieces while Muroor and Lleyton who fought out the finish here over C&D earlier in the month are capable of hitting the frame.
  1. Askari
  2. Muroor
  3. Loughaderra Flame
