          Verdict

          Irish raider Regal Warrior has decent claims if forgiven a poor effort in a handicap hurdle at Fairyhouse last time but SHANEN makes more appeal. He won a couple of bumpers back in May and should come out best if taking to hurdling. Anitopia has been placed in a couple of starts over timber but was beaten a long way on both occasions and Bonnie Burnett makes more appeal as she found only one too good when favourite at Hexham three weeks ago. Ueueteotl and One In A Row could prove best of the rest.
