Verdict

Ian Williams looks to have found a good opportunity for CAUSE TOUJOURS to open his account. He was beaten by a horse now rated 138 when odds-on at Warwick and looks to have an easier task today. Cosy Club won a maiden hurdle at Wetherby last time but is penalised and has plenty to find with the selection on these terms and Iwilldoit may prove a bigger threat on his hurdling debut having been thereabouts in bumpers so far. Blushing Red showed a bit more before fading badly at Wincanton recently and may prove best of the rest.
