In depth

Verdict

RAINBOW PEAK is another high-class recruit from the Flat for John Ferguson. He raced just the once for Godolphin having won the French Derby for Michael Jarvis back in 2010 and is certainly a cut above these if taking to hurdling. Benzanno is a useful handicapper on the level and has joined the McCain yard. He's rated much higher on the Flat than other hurdling newcomers Time Of My Life and Khelac. Bumper winner Fair Loch makes his debut over timber and could go well along with the more experienced Yorkist.
