In depth

Verdict

Alan Swinbank had three winners at last week's National Hunt Flat meeting here and ANYCHANCEDAVE is taken to carry on the good work. He's a half-brother to a bumper winner and gets the vote to score on his racecourse debut. Fellow debutant Hot Head is worth noting for another yard with a fine record of NH winners at this track, with Oscara Dara and Smart Song newcomers to keep an eye on for the future. Hackpenbay finished a respectable second in a bumper on the Polytrack on his debut and could prove the best of those with experience.
