Verdict

Dowd's Destiny has the best recent form on offer when only beaten a head on fast ground at Market Rasen on his chasing debut. His earlier efforts on soft ground leave him with something to prove here, however, and he's taken on with CIRCUS CLOWN. The latter has won over hurdles at this track in heavy going and shaped well enough on his first start over fences when sixth at Kelso. Quacity finished a close-up fifth at Newcastle on his chasing bow and, though he has something to find with the principals, makes most appeal of the remaining trio.
