In depth

Verdict

Pearlysteps is the pick on previous form under Rules but was going backwards last season. Alskamatic and Gunmoney have been consistent sorts in point-to-points and Nalim has also won his fair share between the flags. Viking Splash could figure if fully wound-up but we'll take a chance on the fitness of LORIKARAD. He hasn't raced since March 2012 but was a decent hunter chaser when last seen and knows his way around here.
