Verdict

The winner of this concluding 3m handicap hurdle will almost certainly come from the quartet of Sporty Yankee, Wind Of Hope, Emma Beag and ANIKNAM. Gordon Elliott's charge must prove his stamina over this trip, while last year's winner Emma Beag comes into the race in-form, admittedly from an 8lb higher mark than 12 months ago. Therefore, the selection is Phil Kirby's one-time useful novice who reportedly landed some sizeable bets when scoring in a very game manner at Uttoxeter on New Year's Eve. Assuming that the exertions of that race haven't taken their toll, he should go close from a token 3lb higher mark.
  1. Aniknam
  2. Emma Beag
  3. Sporty Yankee
