Verdict

De Name Escapes Me appeared to win a shade cosily at Navan but, while he's respected, the 14lb burden imposed on him by the handicapper might take its toll at the death. In the same colours, another chance is handed to ANY SECOND NOW. He's yet to win over fences but has shown lots of promise. This 3m trip and the new blinkers could be the making of a talented but frustrating character. There are endless dangers. Solomn Grundy is one, on his second to the likely favourite last time out, while Livelovelaugh is another up in journey. Polidam was well-backed for this a year ago and, in the same ownership, Borice is well worth noting.
