Verdict

Quite an interesting end to the card with seven making their debuts and both Nicky Henderson and Warren Greatrex hold strong hands and are doubly represented. The first string for Henderson looks to be Morning Vicar and he should be respected along with the likely main player from the Greatrex yard Up To No Good who cost €50,000 as a three-year-old. However, experience may well be a factor here and BADDESLEY KNIGHT started his career with a sound run at Fontwell and that form has been franked. Black Lightning also showed up well on his debut and he too has experience on his side. Drovers Lane comes back from a long absence but wasn’t a cheap purchase and he should be watched in the market along with French import Enrichissant.
  1. Baddesley Knight
  2. Morning Vicar
  3. Up To No Good
