Verdict

CONFIRMATION BIAS proved a disappointment on his Ayr hurdling debut last month, but he was very promising in bumpers so could easily leave that well behind. Runswick Bay was no match for a good prospect at Exeter last time, but he pulled clear of the remainder and remains open to improvement, with Dorking Lad another firmly in the mix following an encouraging debut in this sphere at Sandown.
