Verdict

GOLAN CLOUD was given a break prior to landing this race last year and, on the back of a similar period of absence this time round, he is taken to repeat the dose. He wasn't beaten far despite the combination of the 23.3f trip and heavy going amounting to too stiff a test at Hexham when last seen in December. Emissaire has claims judged on his latest effort and Joie de Vivre merits respect, too.
