Verdict

Bally Gunner failed to complete at Newcastle last month but that may have come too soon after an impressive win over these fences. However, he still has some improving to do off a 12lb higher mark while Collyns Avenue shaped well enough on his chasing bow but that was back in February 2011. BRUNETTE'SONLY has been unlucky to find one too good over C&D on her last couple of outings and Seamus Mullins' mare gets the nod on her return to action ahead of recent Folkestone second Guydus, who is upped in class today.
