Verdict

Only a handful to consider for this opener, and of those, KING CALVIN makes the most appeal. He was quietly impressive when winning at Wincanton, taking the scalps of two higher-rated horses than himself and there appeared to be no fluke about that. He can follow up under a penalty. Master Tommytucker was another to impress last time out and he may well be the one to give him most to think about. Applesolutely travelled like the winner at Hereford last time out but didn't find quite as much as expected, but nevertheless she may be best of the rest.
