Verdict

CALCULATED RISK was strongly fancied for a Class 2 juvenile hurdle at Huntingdon last week after winning easily on his debut at Doncaster but made mistakes and never got near the leaders. The softer ground here will help and he can gain compensation at the main expense of French import Unique De Cotte, who'll be all the better for his third at Ffos Las but is conceding weight all round. Totalize won at Musselburgh after chasing home Ruacana at Catterick and should also be thereabouts but it's difficult to make a serious case for any of the others.
