Verdict

MANYRIVERSTOCROSS looks to hold rock solid claims and he is preferred to Inventor and Vino Griego. Alan King has had plenty of winners in the last fortnight and Manyriverstocross is well regarded by connections. He ran out an impressive winner at Chepstow last month in a maiden hurdle and if he is to make his way to the Cheltenham Festival next year he will be expected to take this. Inventor was well beaten on the flat in a competitive handicap at Ascot last month but he has got some solid form on the level and he could be interesting on his first run for Don McCain Jnr over hurdles. Vino Griego has been off the racecourse since February when he was an impressive winner of a bumper on heavy ground at this track. His trainer thinks a bit about him so if he is fit enough to do himself justice on his return from a break then he could go close. Bangkok Pete was found wanting under a penalty in a bumper last time but he had won well on his debut previously and he is not one to discount lightly. There are some interesting contenders here and Manyriverstocross is taken to get his head in front and enhance his reputation.
