Verdict

GORKI D'AIRY found only the promising Minella Escape too good on hurdling debut and, with improvement on the cards, should be able to get off the mark at the second attempt. Schone Aussicht, whose form last time is working out well, could pose the main threat ahead of Hamundarson and Bal de Rio.
