Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

The most interesting of these is VINA ARDANZA, who accounted for a host of previous winners when landing an Ayr bumper for Stuart Crawford on debut in April. He could turn out to be pretty useful and is bound to have been well-schooled ahead of this hurdles bow. Walnut Beach shaped well on his first run in this sphere at Roscommon and he is second choice ahead of Pretorius.
