Verdict

MAYO STAR looked good when scoring over C&D and at Newcastle last term, and there may well be more to come from him back in this sphere following an encouraging reappearance over fences here in November. Corrieben Reiver left Ebony Jewel trailing in his wake at Kelso and is feared, despite an 11 lb hike, while fellow last-time-out winner Dorking Boy is also shortlisted.
