Verdict

Sphinx is just a few days short of his 15th birthday but ran his best race for a long time behind today's rival Sun Cloud at Wetherby last month. The winner has been well beaten subsequently but Hurraboru won a bumper on his only start on heavy going and ran very well at Wetherby three weeks ago. AMERICAN LIFE won on the Flat in Germany and ploughed through the Lingfield mud to land a novice hurdle a fortnight ago. He's capable of doing better and can make a winning start in handicaps. Winning point-to-pointer King's Sunset will enjoy the stamina test but Stormion blotted his copybook at Hexham after winning there previously.
