Verdict

A few of these have shown some promise before disappointing but BENBECULA hasn't done much wrong and his early runs for Richard Hannon look strong enough for this. He found a mile much too short on his first start for Tommy Carmody last month and this should bring out the best in him. Urban Ball had looked a certain future winner when twice beaten narrowly over the C&D but appeared to resent front-running when strongly fancied last month and was well beaten. Total Reality is closely matched with her on one of those earlier efforts and Johann Bach showed a bit of promise on his debut here last month.
