Verdict

A progressive maiden over hurdles, SHAKA THE KING produced a promising first effort over fences when fourth over this sort of trip at Hexham last month, and with the prospect of more to come, he earns the vote to build on that now. That said Rapid Raider arrives in search of the 4-timer and looks a serious player again. Folks Like Us and Newberry New, under Brian Hughes, complete the shortlist.

  2. RAPID RAIDER (IRE)
