Verdict

It was testing ground when FERGAL MAEL DUIN finished runner-up at Uttoxeter last month. A distance clear of the rest of the field, David Bridgewater's charge gets the nod to go one better in this. Spookydooky was expected to finish closer at Carlisle last time and it could be he prefers faster going but bumper winners Enchanted Garden and Ready Token are worth noting on their hurdling debuts. Lyric Street recorded just the one win on the Flat but had a rating of 98 at one point and makes his hurdling bow for the McCain yard today.
