Verdict

SNAKE EYES was third in a Fairyhouse bumper on his racecourse debut in April and has reportedly been schooling well over timber. He can take this before going on to better things. The others haven't a great deal to recommend them though Bincombe was third at Exeter before being found out in better company at the same track earlier this month. Old Pals Act may also prove a bit better than he's shown so far while newcomer Star Presenter wouldn't need to be anything special to grab a place.
