Verdict

Seemingly the weaker of the two divisions of this novices' hurdle, and that augurs well that Olly Murphy can complete the double with the returning SANGHA RIVER. This ex-Irish pointer can be regarded as unfortunate not to remain unbeaten under rules - the gaps didn't arrive until too late when a fast-finishing second on the AW (bumper) at Lingfield 863-days ago. He switches to a hurdles career at a realistic level, and given his lengthy absence from the track could offer more value at the prices than the Paul Nicholls-trained Ashutor, who has a solid level of previous hurdles form (125-rated) and was thought good enough to compete on the Flat at Royal Ascot a fortnight ago.
