Verdict

At the end of an excellent card, this bumper may look a bit of an anti-climax but TRADEWINDS looked a nice prospect when scoring easily at Kempton in February and will mark himself as one to follow if he can defy a penalty here. Reddy Tobouggie caught the eye at Warwick in January and will know more today while Meadowcroft Boy made a winning start at Newcastle, though that form is a little suspect at this level. Paul Webber's pair Bayley's Dream and Honour A Promise both showed potential on their introduction and Glingerburn only found one too good at Musselburgh in November but hasn't been seen since.
