Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

SHANKO created an excellent impression when making a winning bow here last month and is fancied to defy a 7 lb penalty at the chief expense of David O'Meara's debutant Mick McHugh, who appeals on paper and is worth monitoring in the betting. Lingfield debut third Crush And Run looks the pick of the remainder.

Betting Forecast

4/1 Crush And Run (Ire), 12/1 Canmore (Ire), 25/1 Music Banner (Ire), 13/2 Profit And Loss (Fr), 4/1 Mick Mchugh, 13/8 Shanko
