Verdict

Having looked a really bright prospect on his hurdles debut KINGS RYDE was a real letdown latest as a long odds-on favourite. He has been given a bit of time since and steps up in trip here so is given a chance to redeem himself. Canelo looks a real danger in receipt of weight after two good seconds and he should be better still over this trip. Dan McGrue surely has more to come for Paul Nicholls so he should be involved too.
  1. Kings Ryde
  2. Canelo
  3. Dan Mcgrue
