In depth

Verdict

Lord Of Tara was strongly fancied for the bumper at Musselburgh yesterday and that looked an easier option than this as he has some interesting rivals. The Bold Lord started favourite on his debut at Ayr last month but looked in need of the experience and better is anticipated while Enchanted Garden has done nothing wrong despite being runner-up at Kelso and Newcastle when well supported. Alfapoint looks one to keep an eye on but a chance is taken with another newcomer SEALOUS SCOUT, who has a fine pedigree being out of a winning bumper from the family of several high-class performers.
