Betting

Forecast

Acey Milan (13/8), Ask Dillon (11/4), Perfect Man (7/1), Clyne (8/1), Eva's Oskar (17/2), Sykes (14/1), Hygrove Percy (20/1), Driftwood Haze (20/1), Carnspindle (33/1), Kris Spin (33/1), Souriyan (80/1)

Verdict
ASK DILLON represents a good yard and he can make a winning seasonal and handicap debut by taking this competitive staying handicap hurdle. The selection has forecast underfoot conditions in his favour and he can see off Acey Milan who ran well when runner-up in a better race than this last time out. Third place can go to Perfect Man who is stepping up in class following a good win here last time out.
  1. Ask Dillon
  2. Acey Milan
  3. Perfect Man
