In depth

Verdict

None of these can be described as progressive. Kind Of Easy and No No Bingo are capable at this level but bad blunders have cost them recently and they both need to brush up their jumping. Dual course winner Cypress Grove made need more time having been pulled up on his comeback at Wincanton but TIME TO THINK ran well for a long way before tiring on her reappearance at Lingfield and she gets the tentative vote off her current mark. Princely Hero is getting no closer but Plum Pudding has slipped back down the weights and may figure.
