Verdict

CADORE made a very promising start to his hurdling career when second to Mica Mika at Wetherby last month finishing well clear of the rest. Lucinda Russell's charge is fancied to go one better here. Multiple Polytrack winner Lexi's Boy made a less auspicious hurdling debut when pulled-up at Kelso and last April's bumper winner Find A Key looks a bigger threat on his hurdling bow and first start since. He makes most appeal of the Nicky Richards trio, with Mill Bay perhaps best of the rest.
