Verdict

This looks very open, with a few of these capable of improving again and leaving their marks well behind. NO COMMENT just gets the vote on the basis of his solid second in a quality handicap at Aintree and still looks well treated. Showem Silver improved out of all recognition on his latest start and it's anyone's guess how much more is in the tank. Oscar's Sam and Billy's Hope are others that should go close if running their races, Woods Well and Okotoks both need a look in the market.
