Verdict

PRINTING DOLLARS gets another chance, despite being a beaten favourite last time. She’s found only one too good in both starts over hurdles having won a point-to-point and a bumper earlier. Cedar Valley has been looking one-paced over shorter trips so might benefit from this more searching test of stamina. Berboru should have done better at Southwell last time, however, and Whispering Affair makes more appeal reverting to maiden company having run in handicaps so far for new connections.
