Verdict

The booking of Lorcan Williams for PRAY FOR A RAINBOW catches the eye and Sam Drinkwater's charge is taken to go one better than when second over fences last time out by taking this competitive amateur riders contest. Gentleman Farmer was a winner under this rider last time out and with the step up in trip likely to suit he can get the better of Andhaar in the race for second.
