Verdict

The betting will be informative as most are open to improvement; not least BULLOIONAIRE, who was a comfortable winner of a bumper on debut and showed a good attitude in his only other previous start. The market can guide as to how he's thrived since then but he certainly has the stamp of a horse that is capable of more progress. Similar comments apply to Grey Diamond, who has a fitness edge over the selection but has to concede 6lb for his win at Chepstow last month. Kauto The King looks a reliable yardstick and he edges out hurdles debutante Valentino Dancer as potentially the best of the rest.
