In depth

Verdict

Shadarpour has a nice pedigree but hasn't lived up to it so far while Capellini has already been beaten in a seller over hurdles. Spoil Me only beat one home at Kempton on Friday and Sun Quest hasn't won a race since 2010, though has been knocking on the door in minor company over timber lately. SAMARKAND was an 80-plus handicapper on the Flat and won over 1m4f on the Polytrack at Kempton in 2011. He hasn't taken to hurdles but this looks like his chance to shine again as winning pointer Houndscourt may be tapped for toe around here.
