Verdict

A typically competitive renewal of one of the more valuable handicap hurdles run in Britain and Ireland, with the vote going to the lightly-raced SEA DUCOR, who shaped as if needing the run on his return here 6 weeks ago and is potentially on a favourable mark. Get My Drift caught the eye when third on his handicap bow in the same race and is next best ahead of Magic Tricks and Cask Mate.

  1. SEA DUCOR
  2. GET MY DRIFT (FR)
  3. MAGIC TRICKS (FR)
