Verdict

GENTLEMAN DUKE appears to be getting the hang of things over fences and anything near the form of his nose defeat at Downpatrick when last seen in August in a 2m3f handicap chase can see him land the prize here seeing off the challenge of C&D winner of this race 12-months ago, Presenting Mahler, who can emerge as the biggest danger. Grand Partner, C&D winner, Fenlon's Hill, Peacocks Secret and Penny Jane are all capable of hitting the frame.
  1. Gentleman Duke
  2. Presenting Mahler
