Verdict

WHIZZ KID has been most impressive in running out a wide-margin winner of a couple of novice hurdles and, with 125 appealing as a rather lenient opening mark, he gets the nod to take this wide-open handicap. Richmond Lake is an obvious threat and the Imperial Cup third, Hacker des Places, is another one to be interested in.

  1. WHIZZ KID (GER)
  2. RICHMOND LAKE (IRE)
  3. HACKER DES PLACES (FR)
