Verdict

URANO was a short-priced favourite over this course and distance last month and on the heels of the leading pair approaching the last when slipping up. He hasn't had much luck throughout his career but this looks another great chance to get off the mark. Stoney has been quite highly tried and may have a bit more to give in first-time blinkers while winning pointer Sizing Coal was sent off favourite on his hurdling debut at Down Royal and showed some promise. Halls Bridge and Fair Funny have also hinted at ability and Company Coming is certainly worth monitoring for future reference.
