Verdict

The form of HANG TOUGH's win at Lingfield in November was boosted earlier in the week so, despite disappointing since, he's taken to bounce back to winning ways with Kevin Brogan's claim a big help. Chanting Hill is another one with potential and is regarded as the main threat ahead of Cudgel.
