Verdict

BAY OF INTRIGUE's form is on an upward curve so he is taken to gain compensation for his last-flight fall at Hereford and open his account. C&D winner Smurphy Enki would be a formidable opponent if taking his chance (pulled up in the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown on Saturday). Iron Mike looks the pick of the remainder and a solid place prospect.
