Verdict

FREE SPEECH jumped well under AP McCoy to gain his first success in 18 starts under Rules at Folkestone last week and can follow up under a penalty as today's young rider can use his 7lb claim. Ballyman has an almost identical profile having gained his first-ever success here a fortnight ago when he had Manmoon just behind in third and The Hardy Boy a long way back. Manmoon is slightly better off and must have a fair chance of reversing the form. Ede's scored over 2m2f on very heavy ground at Fontwell before failing in a three-runner affair over today's trip there.
