Verdict

HARLESTONE WOOD is clear at the weights and fancied to take advantage. He found Flat debutant Megastar too good when failing to land the odds over track and trip last time but finished a street clear of the rest of the field and can make amends. Elysian has plenty to find on today's terms and Minority Interest ran a shocker on his comeback after finishing runner-up at Wolverhampton in September. Torero will also need a big improvement to figure but the 75,000gns gelding Full Swing is worth a second glance on his belated racecourse debut.
