In depth

Verdict

A competitive field goes to post for this staying handicap hurdle and many have chances on there best form, but we will take a chance on Kivatos. The five-year-old was a good second behind Derivative last time and the step up in trip should suit so he should not be far away. Dark Shadows rates the main danger on his latest second behind Overstrand he to is sure to be suited by the longer trip as he stayed on well on that occasion. Plenty Courage has dropped to a handy mark and could run well with conditions in his favour. Comanche Wind is another well weighted on his best form but her ran no sort of race last time out and for that reason he is opposed on this occasion. Minivet is another that is worthy of great respect but his best efforts of late have come on soft ground. Of the remainder Captain Robin is from a shrewd yard and is worth a cautionary look in the market.
