Verdict

Four chasing newcomers means this isn't the easiest of races to assess, and a chance is taken on Donald McCain's AWAY AT DAWN to make a winning start over fences given he arrives in excellent form over hurdles and was runner-up on his only points run. Slanelough rates the obvious threat on the back of his breakthrough Ayr success, while Check My Pulse is another fencing debutant worth considering.
