Verdict

PRINCE BLACKTHORN probably found 2m1f too short on his reappearance and though he still looked very one-paced it wasn't a bad effort in the context of this poor race and he's handed the vote. Stags Leap hasn't made progress after winning a novices' handicap at Kelso in May but can't be dismissed nor can One For Harry, who hasn't looked a natural jumper in his three races to date over timber and makes his handicap debut with a big weight. Gwladys Street, who showed some promise last season, was beaten a distance on his comeback at Wetherby and the market is best watched for any signs of a revival from the remainder.
