Verdict

Those with previous hurdles experience don't set a tall standard and it may pay to side with a newcomer in the shape of CAPTAIN QUINT. A £110,000 purchase from the pointing field, he makes appeal on paper and could be worth chancing. Tim Pat, another point recruit, and Jack Of All Shapes, who was progressive in bumpers, head up the dangers, ahead of Fortescue Wood and Maid of Houxty.

  1. CAPTAIN QUINT (IRE)
  2. JACK OF ALL SHAPES (IRE)
  3. TIM PAT (IRE)
