Verdict

AHYAKNOWYERSELF made mistakes when sent off favourite at Haydock last month and couldn't match the pace of the first two in the closing stages. But Richard Newland's charge must be worth another chance over these easier fences as he was rated more than 20lb superior to Veloce over hurdles, though the latter's recent run here over the smaller obstacles should have blown away a few cobwebs. Bin End has won three times on this course and has been well beaten in all three starts over fences and Tchang Goon is a long-standing maiden who is hardly improving at the age of 10.
