Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Not a deep novice in the slightest and a good opportunity for SIR MAXI to make it second time lucky. He cost a fair bit earlier this year and shaped well on his recent debut at Windsor. He's sure to improve and his yard have an excellent record at Pontefract. Roydmoor is a player if overcoming the highest draw, while Emperor Supreme, also starting from out wide, is a newcomer to note.
