Verdict

IFYOULETMEFINISH took a while to get the hang of things on his hurdling debut behind Grumeti over C&D last month but was noted staying on strongly in the closing stages and will be more the finished article here. His stable is going well at present and he may just know too much for debutant Pearl Swan, who was placed several times on the Flat in France and get a handy weight-for-age allowance but may do better when tackling longer trips. Private Story may need this after a lay-off and Zebrano preferred fast ground on the level while Miss Tenacious is more exposed than most.
