Verdict

The Martaline gelding MOROSINI has been producing a number of gallant efforts over hurdles since May and the Jessica Harrington-trained five-year-old can once again visit the winners enclosure in a tricky looking contest. One of four in the race for owner J P McManus the second of nine over C&D in November can get the better of Snugsborough Hall and Oh'herewego. Guard Of Honour representing a yard who have a 71% win and place strike rate at this meeting since 2017 hitting the frame on five occasions from seven starters appears capable of hitting the frame along with the Robert Tyner-trained Don't Kick Nor Bite.
  1. Morosini
  2. Snugsborough Hall
  3. Guard Of Honour
