Verdict

Bernisdale has been placed on the Flat since her fifth at Uttoxeter and is dropped a grade for this. Mac Le Couteau ran his best race so far at Newton Abbot nine days ago while Prince Pippin was second here in June off a 2lb higher mark. THE OMEN might have gone close at Bangor last time had he not got the last all wrong. Though harshly raised 6lb for that and still a maiden, he might be improving so gets a tentative vote here.
