In depth

Verdict

MIDTERM BREAK showed promise on his recent debut at Ripon when finding only Roudee too good. That looks stronger form than Rose Of Kiev has to offer and David Barron's good strike rate at the track further boosts confidence. It will be worthwhile monitoring the betting as regards the newcomers with Rita's Boy, a half-brother to three winners, and both Tuebrook and Pearlise related to winners on the Fibresand.
