Verdict

Not lots of strength-in-depth here, but the bottom two on the racecard could both be going places and are likely to have it between them, unless something else can find significant improvement. For today, TWO FOR GOLD has plenty going for him, after a very good hurdles debut when pitched in at Grade 2 level last month. Time To Move On is not taken on lightly, given that he is unbeaten, but he may just have to give best to his chief rival's bit of extra experience. Thelongwayaround, Mountain Hawk, Dr Time and Fifth Symphony are worth considering for each-way players.
  1. Two For Gold
