Verdict

A P McCoy has a terrific strike rate when riding for Jim Best and the pair can coninue their successful partnership with SLANEY STAR. Placed in a bumper here last June, this is the six-year-old's first appearance in a seller and he's almost certain to attract market support. Cappielow Park certainly has claims on recent seconds here and at Market Rasen and has the beating of veteran County Zen on the form book. The ex-Irish Powertakeoff may be best of the rest as the remainder often struggle to raise a gallop.
