Verdict

A few in with a shout but STOKES has made a positive start to hurdling, filling the runner-up spot on both occasions. An opening mark of 106 could prove lenient so Ben Pauling's charge earns the vote to make a winning start to life in handicaps. Enlighten is heading in the right direction so he's fancied to give the selection most to think about, ahead of recent-winner Evita du Mesnil.
