Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

CARIBEAN BOY shaped as if he's worth a try in headgear in the Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham on his return but got no further than the first when fitted with cheekpieces in a listed handicap at Ascot on return. He's worth another chance back down in class and with the headgear retained. Kitty's Light is on a good mark if able to reproduce his earlier season form so is feared most.
