The Sportsman's Verdict
Trixster has won two of his last three including a narrow success at Chepstow last time. The highest rated in the field on official figures, he has to be given a chance, but SKANDIBURG may have more scope for improvement. Olly Murphy's gelding got off the mark at the second attempt over timber when running riot at Fakenham and shaped as though the step up to this trip would suit. Stoney Rover followed a Hexham win with a second at that Northumberland venue and is evidently in the form to have his say.
