Verdict

Akdam is the obvious starting point but has been a beaten favourite twice since making a winning debut in a poor race at Hexham. Refer had the highest rating of these on the Flat so market interest would be significant and Beau Select has also won on the level, though recent form is off-putting, while Vergality Ridge only kept on through beaten horses at Newton Abbot eight days ago. John Quinn normally does well with his juvenile hurdlers so we'll take a chance on MANY LEVELS, who showed little on the Flat but may do better now faced with a set of hurdles.
