Verdict

Not a strong event and it probably gives FINISK RIVER a good chance of getting off the mark having showed promise on debut at Bangor in a race where he was only beaten 5L by a couple of more experience and faces nothing of that ilk here. Now Children, much the best of these on the Flat hasn’t so far managed to put it all together over hurdles disappointing last time after showing promise on his debut despite being beaten at odds-on. This will be his second run back from a wind op, a return to a shorter trip and sharper track may well help. Don’t Go Gentle makes his hurdling debut having shown ability in bumpers but he looks the type to need a stiffer test to reveal his true potential.
