In depth

Verdict

Any market interest in Mick Easterby's winning pointer Piece Of Magic should be monitored but this is probably best left to LUCEMATIC, who made a winning start over hurdles at Kelso over a longer trip and could outstay these. Detour Ahead produced a much-improved effort when runner-up at Catterick earlier this month and may be best of the rest, though Mary Milan is probably capable of better.
