Verdict

A difficult looking opener in which there'll be plenty of competition for the lead with both Bobbie Emerald and Ninepointsixthree known for their ability to force the pace. The latter got into a good rhythm when scoring over C&D in early December and is very much respected in the first time tongue-tie with valid excuses in defeat since. FLOWERY is clearly a shade quirky but seeks the hat-trick after scoring with more in hand than the official winning margin at Catterick, and although a subsequent 11lb rise in the weights will make life tougher, he gets the nod as the selection.
  1. Flowery
