Verdict

Kalkan Bay stepped up on his hurdling debut when second at Bangor in July but he may lack the scope of SZABO'S DESTINY. A winner twice on the Flat in the spring, James Given's gelding was beaten a less than a length by favourite Royal Bonsai on his introduction at Market Rasen despite showing signs of inexperience. He should again beat third Residence And Spa and can open his account over timber today. Cordillera and Operateur should improve on their first runs, but Hartforth was beaten a long way at Cartmel and Bernisdale was only a plater on the level.
