Verdict

Aloe Vera represents good bloodlines and a yard with an excellent record here. This may be less competitive than it looks and she may be good enough to win on debut, given doubts about the value of Manorah's Kempton victory and whether Flying Tiger is as good as he was. Baasem looks the type who will improve for being gelded and Maiden Castle caught the eye on his debut, but Andrew Balding saddles three with WEDDING BLUE looking their main hope. The Kingman colt is bred to be suited by shorter but looked a middle-distance horse in the making when staying on well last time and his yard have had an excellent year with his age group.
  1. Wedding Blue
  2. Aloe Vera
  3. Manorah
