Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

MELODY KING may have scored with better luck at Hamilton last time and with that race having worked out he's of firm interest off the same mark with Oisin Murphy now up. Last week's C&D 1-2 Seneca Chief and Glamorous Breeze, who sports sterner headgear now, should come to the fore again also.

Betting Forecast
