Verdict

PISGAH PIKE is entitled to be a warm order in this having chased home the odds-on Sangha River on his second hurdles start at Market Rasen when he was 13 lengths ahead of Decoration Of War. Nikgarde placed twice in bumpers at Newcastle last season and will have had plenty of schooling but it’s difficult to make a case for many of the others.
