Verdict

The key to this contest may well be the 2m4f contest that both Pond Road and SKYLANNA BREEZE contested at Huntingdon last time where they finished fourth and sixth respectively. Kim Bailey’s charge has already proven his stamina for trips such as this but he doesn’t look an easy ride and would benefit from some sterner headgear. The selection on the other hand does need to prove his stamina and he does have 10L to find with his old adversary but he will be suited by the better conditions here and may well reverse the form. Most of the others are modest with Sedgefield fourth Espoir Moriviere the only other one who has shown any real form of late.
