Verdict

General Ting landed a double at the start of the month and has a 9lb rise to contend with. He's still not out of this as he drops down a grade but TRIP THE LIGHT is also dropped in class and he's just preferred. He responded well to first-time blinkers when runner-up at Stratford and should make another bold bid here. Minsky Mine is another down in class after a third to Open Day over C&D and should go well along with the returning Sacrilege, a winner at Fontwell in May. Ballybriggan and Top Wood disappointed on their latest starts but are not easily dismissed representing powerful yards.
