Verdict

It was testing ground when Cole Harden scored at Fontwell and Knockanrawley won at Towcester on his hurdling debut. But both carry penalties for and STEEL CITY may take advantage. The latter won a bumper early in the year before going close over these hurdles last month and gets the vote to open his account. Gallic Warrior also ran well when fourth here last time and Black Cow is another to consider representing the Nicholls yard on his hurdling debut.
