Verdict

It's not stretching the imagination to state that this is a particularly weak race even by Hexham standards, although it does feature last year's runner-up Silverton. With viable threats at a bare minimum, by far the likeliest candidate is the top-weight SOLID STRIKE. This fact has clearly been recognised by the agent of Brian Hughes, so with a safe round of jumping this should be yet another winner on the board.
  1. Solid Strike
  2. Ringaringarosie
