Verdict

Tim Pitt's Dark Ranger won well when successful at in a Ripon seller on his latest start at the end of August and he has to be respected first time out over hurdles but faces no easy task, while Neil King's Keep Talking has shown ability in bumpers and has to be considered on his first run over timber. Lucy's Perfect was nothing out of the ordinary on the flat but any market support for David Pipe's filly would be of interest, although it is hard to get away from SIRCOZY. Gary Moore's gelding was capable on the flat and made a decent start to his hurdling career when landing a maiden hurdle over course and distance in August and he can win again.
