Verdict

PUNITIVE is a hurdler who has a progressive profile and he may not have stopped winning just yet. A winner over course and distance here last month, the six-year-old does not have too many outstanding rivals to get the better of and can come out on top once again. Minx Tiara is a very consistent mare and is likely to be in the firing in the closing stages. Veteran Seskinane delivered a deserved win last time at this track and repeat of that effort would give him very solid place claims.
