Verdict

BLACKWATER KING was surprisingly beaten by Grate Fella at Sedgefield but that was his hurdling debut and he'll know more today. Donald McCain's four-year-old looks the one to beat though Phoenix Returns could be interesting tackling hurdles for the first time and makes more appeal than Rose Dobbin's three runners. Winning pointer Stitched In Time may prove the best of that trio while Gymdoli won at Hexham last month at huge odds but doesn't appeal as the type likely to defy a penalty.
