Verdict

A tricky contest to end proceedings, with the unexposed Chinwag one who should be towards the head of any shortlist. One who can't be ruled out is Bard Of Brittany given how well he has started life under his new trainer. Outrath loves it at this venue, and despite looking vulnerable for win purposes has excellent place claims, while Scrutinise is hard to enthuse over after he posted a below-par effort last time out. A tentative vote is given in favour of HYMN AND A PRAYER who is lightly raced and produced a promising return to action when fourth over C&D last month. He can build on that effort and record a first career success over hurdles.
  1. Hymn And A Prayer
  2. Outrath
  3. Bard Of Brittany
