Verdict

This is a tricky start as Juno The Muffinman and Valco De Touzaine both have a double penalty, though 5lb claimers are employed to ease their burden. It was soft ground when DOLLAR BILL got off the mark at Folkestone and there seems little chance that either Coup De Grace or Shamrocked will reverse that form here. Nick Gifford's charge may still be improving and gets the nod though Another Sensation is worth noting for future reference as Jonjo O'Neill's French import twice ran in Listed races at Auteuil in the spring. Inffiraaj won on the Polytrack last month but there's not a lot in his pedigree to suggest he'll take to hurdles.
