Verdict

Alan King has trained the last two winners of this and a treble isn't out of the question as Simply A Legend has only found one too good on three occasions this season. Tara Road is improving with experience and should be thereabouts while Gallic Warrior was giving plenty of weight to subsequent scorer Here's Herbie at Exeter at the start of the month. No one could begrudge GASSIN GOLF a first success as he's run well in the majority of his starts over timber, his latest second behind Baltimore Rock in the Imperial Cup being easily the best form on offer in this. Benenden looks best of the rest, though Now Ben and Shelford are possible improvers.
