Verdict

BOOTLEGGER shaped well having conceded first run when second starting out for a new yard at Musselburgh recently and is fancied to go one better from a lenient mark. The in-form Rob The Getaway also warrants consideration, while Smith's Bay is likely to step forward on just his second chase outing.
