Verdict

DR SANDERSON is one of a trio of runners carrying a penalty but his trainer Paul Nicholls has probably found the ideal opportunity in which to supplement the Worcester winnings, and in-turn pay back another small portion of the purchase price. On hurdles form, the main threat would seemingly come from the Tom Lacey-trained He's A Goer, albeit it's worth noting that he was beaten over 8L in a Newcastle bumper (Dec 2017) won by today's rival Star Of Lanka.
  1. Dr Sanderson
  2. He's A Goer
  3. Star Of Lanka
