Verdict

Rajnagan, who completed a four-timer earlier this summer and has won on the Flat since, and Market Rasen specialist Book'em Danno set a decent standard here while Elsafeer, winner of two of his last three starts, may be improving. But, in receipt of a decent weight allowance, hurdling newcomer GREYLAMI gets the nod. Though best over 1m2f on the Flat, where he currently has an 89 rating, he should have no problem staying 2m around here on fastish ground and can outpace his rivals. Pat's Legacy, another useful sort on the level, looks best of the rest.
