In depth

Verdict

Eastbury ran well on debut here at the start of the month and will know more today but that's also the case with GUEST OF HONOUR. He was also fourth on his introduction over course and distance but was a real eye-catcher having been held up well off the pace and is the type to go on to better things. Somchine was well beaten by Kings Palace at Plumpton last month and former pointer Oscars Den may do better over further but Philip Hide's newcomer Strictly Cissbury is worth a second look as he's got a Flat pedigree and shouldn't be short of pace.
