Verdict

A number of these arrive at the top of their game and Chalk It Down, Honour System, Tamarillo Grove, Hawkhill and Party Palace are all previous course winners. As well as Hawkhill, David Pipe also runs Purple 'n Gold while Roman Flight ran well when fifth in a Listed handicap at Market Rasen last month and holds Castlemorris King and Hawkhill on that form. TZORA is back over hurdles on a decent mark after winning over fences here last month. His last three victories have come around here and he could surprise a few of these.
