Verdict

Keith Dalgleish has his string in fine order just now, with a 33% strike rate from 15 runners recently. SPORTING PRESS has run well in two starts over hurdles and should get off the mark now by confirming Ayr placings with Dark Ruler, the pair having finished second and third respectively at Ayr last month over similar trip. Manamite may do best of the rest ahead of Musselburgh third Skyhill, who is dropping right back in trip from three-miles.
