Verdict

Donald McCain has sent out the winner of this twice in the last four years and introduces UP AND GO in this year's renewal. A point-to-point winner back in March, he could well be good enough on his debut under Rules. The Road Ahead has shown enough to suggest she can win one of these in time and Cape York showed promise on his first start at Aintree last month when sixth to Broadway Buffalo. Key To The West has a shout on his debut second at Warwick and the newcomer Even If is a half-brother to a bumper winner and worth a second glance.
