Verdict

CAID DU BERLAIS ran well here two years ago and he can put last years disappointment behind him to take a competitive looking renewal of this prestigious amateur riders event. The selection made the perfect start to his campaign when winning his prep race and he can get the better of last years winner Hazel Hill who suffered a shock defeat on his most recent outing. Law Of Gold impressed in a point-to-point on his return to action and he can get the better of Staker Wallace in the battle for third.
  1. Caid Du Berlais
  2. Hazel Hill
