Verdict

ANQUETTA has his quirks and was put up 8lb after beating King Edmund, Darceys Dancer, Torphichen and Takeroc in a Listed handicap over C&D three weeks ago. He looks capable of progressing again, however, and is probably the one to beat again today. I'msingingtheblues was the only one to make a race of it with Tanks For That at Cheltenham last week and should be pressing for a place again, while there should be more come from stablemate Dan Breen this term. Gilbarry is best watched at present, however, while De Boitron may need another run to put him straight though was fourth in the Grand Annual off this mark in March.
