Verdict

RARE LEGEND scooted home at Huntingdon at the weekend and, given that he only carries 4lb extra for that smooth performance, the gelding has to merit an interest in a weak event such as this. Glenabo Bridge, who sports a tongue tie for the first time, comes into this is good heart and could be the biggest threat if this comes around too quickly for the selection. Come Home Quick and The Grey Guy are others worth bearing in mind to make the frame.
  1. Rare Legend
  2. Glenabo Bridge
  3. Come Home Quick
