Verdict

Saucy Baron and Lothian Gem are easily overlooked but the newcomers Fling Me and Top Gamble are worth a second glance. The former is related to a couple of National Hunt winners while the latter is a half-brother to bumper and hurdle winners Zimbabwe and Zaffre. However, the safest option is to stick with O'FAOLAINS BOY, a point-to-point winner who made a promising debut under Rules when third at Newbury last week behind Oscar Rock.
