Verdict
SPORTING JOHN made a winning Rules debut here last time out and he with similar conditions forecast he can register a second Rules victory with a success in this big field novices' hurdle. The selection can get the better of Guy who showed promise when placed last time out while third can go to Starsky who represents the stable who took this race with a useful individual 12 months ago.
  1. Sporting John
  2. Guy
  3. Starsky
