Verdict

GEORDIELANDGANGSTA showed ability when finishing in the frame over hurdles last time out and he is taken to make a winning debut over fences stepping up in distance. The selection is less exposed than most of his rvials and he can get the better of Cudgel who can claim second on his return to chasing while third place can go to top weight Mountain Hawk who is stepping up in trip and dropping in grade.
  1. Geordielandgangsta
  2. Cudgel
  3. Mountain Hawk
