Verdict

CAPTAIN CUTTER, the only newcomer in this, is thrown in at the deep end but is superbly bred and Nicky Henderson must obviously think a bit of him. He could be good enough to edge out easy Plumpton winner Kings Palace. Tiqris was beaten less than two lengths at Chepstow in April on his first start under Rules and is another nice prospect while Boss In Boots and Golanova have shown some ability. Some of these may be too quick for ex-pointers Rockchasebullett and Be My Present however.
