In depth

Verdict

The market will probably be the best guide to the chances of several nicely-bred newcomers here. Double Risk, Duke Des Champs and Herbert Park are all worth a second look but the mare Sister Suzie might be the most interesting being by Presenting out of a two-times hurdles winner. MURPHYS WAY has a cracking NH pedigree being by Oscar out of a Supreme Leader mare. He's a half-brother to a winning bumper and hurdler and has already won a point-to-point so should know his job. Detroit Blues has also scored between the flags and looks the pick of the remainder.
