Verdict

Lots with chances but Johnny Farrelly's GASTARA has long given the impression there is much better to come once stepping into handicap-company. Talented conditional Kevin Brogan is an eye-catching booking and he is fancied to go well. Dorking Lad, one of two for Gary Moore, heads the list of dangers, although Grangeclare Glory can have a say too now going up in trip.

  1. GASTARA
  2. DORKING LAD
  3. GRANGECLARE GLORY (IRE)
