Verdict

A competitive handicap with the narrow vote in favour of GRANGECLARE GLORY. There's been plenty of promise to glean from both hurdle starts so far this winter and it's highly likely there is more to come now handicapping up in trip. Penny Mallow, on the back of a short break, Blame The Game and Katahdin head up the dangers.

  1. GRANGECLARE GLORY (IRE)
  2. PENNY MALLOW (FR)
  3. BLAME THE GAME (IRE)
