Verdict

There are quite a few in this who can be expected to step forward on what they have done so far and one of those would be FIRST ASSIGNMENT who shaped with plenty of encouragement last time out and should build on that run. Gunfleet is another similar runner and he was better than the bare result last time. The Groovy Hoovy has also shaped well so far and he along with Ballygomartin and Over Stated are another trio to keep an eye on. Both Shannon Bridge and Silver Kayf have already proved themselves capable of winning such an event but they may find it tough to follow up under a penalty against a field that has some obvious promise amongst those getting weight.
  1. First Assignment
  2. Gunfleet
  3. The Groovy Hoovy
