Verdict

WAKANDA got off the mark on his debut over hurdles at Sligo in July. He's since joined Sue Smith and can make a winning start for his new yard. Saint Thomas landed a maiden hurdle in good style at Bangor last month and looks a bigger threat than Exclusive Dancer with most of the remainder making their debuts over timber. Satanic Beat is the best of those on the Flat and arrives on the back of a win at Pontefract.
