Verdict

A strong Class 3 handicap chase which features no fewer than four last-time out winners. Capard King posted an exemplary round of jumping when successful over C&D (soft) 23 days ago, while the Sean Curran-trained Domaine De L'Isle has continued to improve since fitted with a tongue-tie. Meanwhile both Pookie Pekan and Looks Like Murt tackle stronger opponents than when winning at Carlisle and Kelso respectively. However, the horse to stick with is the talented SAM'S ADVENTURE. He remains low-mileage over fences with a 5lb rise for finishing a neck second to Lord Du Mesnil (twice a Haydock winner since) considered potentially lenient.
  1. Sam's Adventure
  2. Domaine De L'Isle
  3. Capard King
