Verdict

Plenty of these can be ruled out with confidence, with four realistic contenders the ones to focus on. Despite running underwhelmingly after they both won bumpers first time out, Faire Part Sivola and Hazaar still have plenty of potential as they go hurdling for the first time. The latter is particularly interesting given he makes his stable debut for an in-form yard. Durouyn drew comfortably clear of the remainder when second to an above-average sort last time and is a solid place contender, but this looks like a golden opportunity for TRINCOMALEE to break his hurdles duck at the third attempt after running in much stronger contests than this the last twice.
  1. Trincomalee
  2. Hazzaar
  3. Durouyn
