      Verdict

      Darlyn’s earlier double included a course and distance success but she could only manage fourth off today’s mark at Warwick last time. Several make their handicap debuts having yet to threaten over hurdles including Bold Reason and Caswell Bay but NINTH WAVE is preferred having won a point-to point in soft ground last year and Philip Hobbs’ charge gets a speculative vote now handicapping. Bazooka’s earlier win came in a seller but Endless Credit is back on a winning mark if rediscovering his best.
