Verdict

VINA ARDANZA had two previous winners in the places when making a successful bumper debut for Stuart Crawford at Ayr in April and has joined Gordon Elliott. He looks to have been found a good opportunity to make a winning start over timber. Complete Fantasy started out quite well in maidens but didn't progress in handicaps while Call Me Rocky has gone backwards since a very promising hurdling debut at Limerick in December. Walnut Beach was only beaten a length on his debut over timber at Tramore in August and has performed well on the Flat subsequently so could provide the main threat.
