Verdict

Home Run has rattled up a hat-trick in lesser company but may not be one that finds a great deal off the bridle and he could just get found out here. Shammick Boy and Coffee are eased in grade while cheekpieces would need to improve the mare Josh's Dreamway for her to get off the mark for the season. The three-year-old TIDAL WAY faces his stiffest task to date and still needs to brush up his jumping. But Charlie Longsdon has probably left a little to work with and he could be the one to beat in this as Rowlestone Lad only won a Leicester seller last time.
