Verdict

King Of The Wolds displayed a resolute attitude to repel the last thrust of Deise Dynamo to score on his chasing debut at Sedgefield and there should certainly be quite a bit more to come from the Jefferson inmate. The Presenting gelding receives a healthy 8lb from DURSEY SOUND but Jonjo O'Neill's charge created a really good impression when scoring at Bangor before tipping up in mid-race at Market Rasen in what looked an enticing contest. There should be little between them but the topweight receives narrow preference to compensate for that unfortunate spill last time. Hunting Tower has had his attentions turned to chasing at a pretty late stage of his career but did run perfectly well on his chasing debut at Carlisle. It will be interesting to see how he gets on around this totally different track and looks next best after the aforementioned pair.
