Verdict

KERNOFF showed the benefit of his debut at the Curragh with a much improved effort here last month. He progressed further when runner-up to Wind Inher Sleeves over the trip three weeks ago and the form looks strong enough as the fourth has since been headed on the line over an extra furlong when Thirteen Diamonds was behind. Walk Right Back and Conocedor were well beaten behind Kernoff three weeks ago though both were making their debuts and should improve. High Stand made his debut for Sir Michael Stoute at Yarmouth at the beginning of the month and showed up well for a long way on the soft ground. Now with Johnny Murtagh, the 150,000gns yearling is bred to be a flyer so has to be respected. Mr Good Guy should be suited by dropping in trip after showing up well for a long way in a 6f nursery last time.
