Verdict

A winner at Plumpton on his penultimate start, SWORD BEACH proved too free in an amateur riders' race at Wincanton subsequently. However, he remains on an appealing mark judged on his Flat form and could be worth chancing to get back on track partnered by Tom Cannon. Gibraltarian and Good Time Ahead are others to consider, whilst Henry Box Brown demands close market scrutiny on handicap bow.

  1. SWORD BEACH (IRE)
  2. GIBRALTARIAN (IRE)
  3. GOOD TIME AHEAD (IRE)
