Verdict

Lots with chances but HEART OF A LION has had a wind op since his promising Taunton second and looks to have got in lightly for his handicap bow so Alan King's improver is the one to be with. Gunsight Ridge, another with better days ahead of him and representing the in-form Olly Murphy yard, rates next best, with well-weighted Aquila Sky and unexposed Gowel Road two more who need considering.

  1. HEART OF A LION (IRE)
  2. GUNSIGHT RIDGE
  3. AQUILA SKY (IRE)
