Verdict

Donald McCain has wasted no time putting ROYAL ESCORT over hurdles after she finished second in a Sedgefield bumper. The Gamut mare should take all the beating if her jumping holds up as she gets 7lb from Bollin Dolly, who only won a novices' seller at Cartmel in June. Bonnie Burnett and Julia Too have place claims but newcomer Damascus Symphony is more interesting as she won twice on the Flat on soft ground.
