Verdict

This may not be as competitive as the numbers suggest with CRACKING DESTINY a chase debutant taken to build on his very promising run last time out in a handicap hurdle. This looks to be more his sphere based on his impressive point-to-point win and he should be able to hold off another improving type in Urbanist. The race wasn’t really run to suit him last time out and the switch to fences should also be in his favour. Johnny Ocean is another making his chasing bow who may be suited better by this sphere. Shininstar and Is Love Alive both have handicap form to their names but will need to improve on past performances to take a hand.
  1. Cracking Destiny
