In depth

Verdict

Three of these arrive in winning form and it's one of the trio, COPT HILL, who can complete the double. He's only five and had shown very little before gaining a surprise victory in a Sedgefield handicap where he made all for a convincing victory. He's been raised 7lb, which looks fair enough, and a follow-up looks on the cards. The veteran Prize Fighter was a long way out of the handicap and a 100/1 chance when scoring at Wetherby where he was a bit fortunate while King Kalium has been raised 7lb for winning a minor handicap at Ayr. Bunratty has yet to win and has found one too good on three occasions and Northern Acres hasn't shown much in two starts since returning from a break.
