In depth

Verdict

KINGARRICK finally showed some improvement for his slide down the weights when a close-up fifth here last time and Noel Wilson's charge looks set for a return to winning ways. He has Lord Of The Dance to beat as the latter is a winner without a penalty having won an apprentices' race at Kempton last week, though he has something to prove over the trip. Count Ceprano ended a long losing run at this course last time but Royal Sea may improve past him on only his second start since September while Corrib finished a bit closer here last month and looks best of the rest.
