Verdict

SUNNY EXPRESS can break his maiden here at the third attempt over hurdles. He has not fared too badly on the track so far and should improve on this latest appearance. Sao Maxence was a winner in a bumper at this course and went close to following up last time out over that same C&D. He can put up a strong challenge on his hurdles debut, while Endlessly may be capable of much more than his opening run over hurdles so include in your calculations on his latest start over obstacles.
  1. Sunny Express
  2. Sao Maxence
  3. Endlessly
