Verdict

GWANAKO will likely be sent off a very short price for this hunter chase having won a better race over 3m here last month. He beat two rivals, including recent point-to-point winner Dead Or Alive, in this last year under Jody Sole. Veteran Whizzaar is capable of running well fresh but has a lot to find with the selection on collateral form while none of the remaining trio have any worthwhile recent form.
