Verdict

PITHIVIER showed promise when third at Wetherby on his debut. Peter Niven's four-year-old finished well ahead of Backforce and can get off the mark on today's terms. Oleohneh faded badly close home when attempting to land the odds at Catterick last time. But she'd won over track and trip on her introduction so is not easily dismissed. Howaboutnever ran well on his racecourse bow at Bangor and is another to consider ahead of Redkalani, third at this track in December and preferred to Purple Harry.
