Verdict

BUYER BEWARE can put a disappointing effort last time out behind him to take this novices' handicap chase. The selection was a winner on his penultimate start and he can get the better of What's The Scoop who is seeking a first career success. Third place can go the way of Bleu Et Noir who is making his debut over fences.
  1. Buyer Beware
  2. What's The Scoop
  3. Bleu Et Noir
