In depth

Verdict

A competitive hunter chase rounds off proceedings and many have chances on there best form but we will take a chance on Dorans Magic. The eight year old is a sound jumper in the main and he has been in fair form of late between the flags, and any further rain would aid his cause. Parade Racer won in good style last time out at this course when defeating Master Wood. However he had an easy lead on that occasion and he is not sure to get his own way on this occasion Dr Deductible won a similar contest in good style last time and is another that could go well with conditions in his favour. Of the remainder Pharmistice is another in form who goes on any ground and he is sure to run his race. What A fiddler is another that could go well but he has been beset by breaking blood vessels of late.
