    Verdict

    HECTOR DE SIVOLA is making his racecourse debut but is bred for jumping and this won’t take much winning. Prince Percy showed ability on the all-weather at a modest level so rates a danger along with Debt Of Honour, who was quite highly tried last year on the Flat when with Michael Bell.
