Verdict

YOUNG BULL has taken leaps and bounds since being defeated here in October and relished the cut in the ground with his success here last time. The handicapper is treating him lightly currently so it may pay dividends to keep on side until he gets in the grip of the handicapper. Rare Clouds may have failed to get his head in front so far but his trainer usually thrives with these type of horses in handicap company, while the likes of Ozzy Thomas and Dubai Angel have been penalised for their fine efforts last time out, which is off-putting.
