Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

An interesting race to finish with the vote in favour of HATHLOOL. He showed plenty to work on starting out for his new yard when runner-up at Newcastle (10.2f) 17 days ago and appeals as being on a good mark ahead of his handicap debut with the prospect of more to come. Jenson Benson is thriving for Shaun Lycett and feared most, ahead of Balgair and Pledge of Honour.

Betting Forecast

25/1 Pactolus (Ire), 9/1 Wimpole Hall, 7/1 Balgair, 11/1 Pledge Of Honour, 9/1 Gold Wing, 4/1 Hathlool (Ire), 14/1 Roman Dynasty (Ire), 11/2 Jenson Benson (Ire), 14/1 Cerulean (Fr)
