Verdict

There is no doubt that Mercy Mercy Me has the best form in this contest but he’s failed to convert an opportunity like this before and the wearing of a tongue-tie after a wind op suggests that there still may be a residual problem. Conditions may also not be ideal and it may be best to look elsewhere with his former stable providing a useful sort in CAGE OF FEAR who has already shown ability under Rules and is taken to get off the mark. Red Nika is an interesting newcomer who can’t be ignored whilst The Domino Effect and Don’t Shout add to the depth of this contest.
