Verdict

RED MIX and Comber Mill top and tail this handicap and could fight out the finish. The former gets heavy ground for the first time in this country so gets the nod being a pound lower back over hurdles than when a close second to the useful Flashing Glance at Ludlow at the start of the year. Alastair Ralph’s charge goes particularly well here and found 2m4f too far last time while Poucor is only 2lb higher than when successful on heavy going at Plumpton last month. Demon D'Aunou hasn’t won in more than two years and wasn’t getting any closer in the summer while the maiden Desque De L'Isle also needs more.
