Verdict

A really intriguing handicap to kick off, with the narrow vote in favour of CORMIER. Undone by a significant error in the Greatwood Hurdle when last seen, he appeals as being on a workable mark on the balance of his hurdle form and he's expected to go well. Easy Fontwell winner Hystery Bere and Byzantine Empire are just a couple of others to consider.

  1. CORMIER (IRE)
  2. HYSTERY BERE (FR)
  3. BYZANTINE EMPIRE
