Verdict

Philip Hobbs runs two in this but Bite The Biscuit has yet to show anything over timber and Daylami Days is making his debut under Rules. Old Harry Rocks is interesting having made late headway at Kempton last month on his first try over hurdles but GARO DE JUILLEY came up against a useful juvenile when second to Percy Street here in January and should go one better today.
