Verdict

Final Assault is steadily improving and only found Rockabilly Riot too good at Musselburgh earlier this month. But he may have to settle for minor honours again in this behind MCLOVIN, second to the potentially useful Aklan in a big field at Navan a couple of weeks ago having been hampered a couple of times when closing on the leaders up the home straight. The Orange Rogue has won a point-to-point and been placed in a bumper and a novice hurdle but doesn't look anything special while Kings Bandit makes his debut over obstacles.
