Verdict

Back over hurdles after two chase attempts this season, Sonny Carey’s runner BANNTOWN GIRL has good overall credentials for a maiden hurdle success. The Gordon Elliott-trained pair Bellatior and Cool Croi are likely dangers along with Gavin Cromwell’s hurdling debutante One Cool Lady. [Alan Sweetman]
