Verdict

Handsome King's latest third behind Kickingthelilly looks better now as the latter won again at the weekend, though he has a bit to find on today's terms with Darsan, who was runner-up over 7f here last week. Three Bards' placed efforts over further on the Polytrack is the best form on offer although stablemate Za'Lan is also worth noting on his debut, but a chance is taken on DREAM PROSPECTOR. He's making his racecourse bow today but early entries in a couple of valuable sales races at Newmarket in April suggest he's been showing something at home and he gets the nod.
