In depth

Verdict

Manor Park remains 6lb higher than when winning last year’s renewal while Fire Lake’s recent success at Stratford came in a maiden hurdle. CLEARANCE (NAP) is preferred given he won a higher grade contest over track and trip before finishing third back here and gets another chance dropping back down in class. Elham Valley has struggled off a higher mark since winning at Warwick while Peterborough could only manage third despite racing off a lower mark back over hurdles a Ffos Las.
