Verdict

A question of experience versus promise here with the first of those element being provided by THE FLYING SOFA who was just touched off over C&D last time by the useful Acey Milan. A repeat of that effort on better ground ought to be enough to see off Pentland Hils who was promising on the Flat when with Chris Wall but lacks hurdling experience. Grey Diamond has a bigger performance in him if he can settle better and the faster the field go the better for him. The Chris Gordon duo Reallyradical and Shut The Box are worth keeping an eye on for the future whilst it will be interesting to see what two enigmatic former Flat performers Zamperini and Zlatan can bring to the table.
