Verdict

NOBLE ALAN has justified some of Nicky Richards faith in him and the decision to head down to Ascot appears significant enough for us to put him up as the selection. Woolcombe Folly has won four of his last five races and hasn't really given the assessor a full look at him due to his tendency to win by very small margins. Consigliere has been tried in decent handicaps in the past so any market interest would be noteworthy. Henry Daly tends to leave a bit to work on with a first run so we can be confident that sometime front runner, Pickamus, will be cherry ripe this afternoon. Cockney Trucker was an improving novice last term though he disappointed badly on a previous visit to the course when his jumping became very errant indeed.
