Verdict

COCK A DOODLE DOO beat recent Huntingdon winner So Lonely in a mares’ maiden at Sligo last year. She’s disappointed since joining Dan Skelton but this is by far her easiest task to date, despite carrying a penalty. Santani ran 15 times on the Flat in France but failed to get his head in front. He was second five times, however, and the trip won’t be a problem so he looks the danger if fully wound-up. None of the others make any appeal.
