Verdict

AP McCoy continues his association with Donald McCain with Jason Maguire confined to the sidelines and FINAL PASS should be another one for the combination at a venue where the yard enjoys an excellent record. He was never going to beat Fond Memory at Perth on his hurdling debut but the remainder were easily seen off and this appears a more straightforward task. The trip will prove no concern to this Irish point-to-point winner. Swingbridge and Verko are obvious place options on the form book with a market check essential for Perryrun on a belated debut for the raiding Crawford team which operates at a very impressive 33 per cent strike rate at Sedgefield over the past five years.
