Verdict

A blistering pace is guaranteed with the prominent racing trio of Classical Milano (race winner in 2018), School Lane (Ulster National second) and Nortonthorpelegend (on a recovery mission) likely to have a sustained tussle for the lead. Theoretically this should suit a strong finisher such as the frustrating Central Flame or alternatively the lowly-weighted course specialist APACHE PILOT. Despite being 3lb out of the handicap, the Maurice Barnes-trained veteran tends to thrive at this track during the busy spring/summer period and could just prove capable of notching a fifth course win.
