Verdict

It's almost two years since SACRE TOI last ran over hurdles but he's won off today's mark over fences and has conditions in his favour today. Taking into account Dale Irving's allowance, he gets 8lb from last month's Huntingdon scorer Bernardelli and that may be enough to swing things his way. Sam Lord tends to reserve his best for Sedgefield and was entered at Uttoxeter yesterday but there are possibilities about unexposed Sedgefield winner Light The City if he handles the easier surface. It will be a surprise if any of the others prove good enough at the weights.
