Verdict

WHIPCRACKAWAY, a winner three times on the Flat, can only improve on his debut fourth at Newton Abbot over timber. That wasn't a bad contest and Peter Hedger's charge gets the vote here ahead of the more exposed Fine Resolve. Feb Thirtyfirst has twice finished second over C&D and is improving with experience. He has the beating of the mare Annaluna on the form book and looks a bigger danger than debutant Chankillo.
