Verdict

DIAMOND KING was a ready winner on his hurdling debut at Wetherby and sets the standard here, despite carrying a penalty. There looks to be plenty more to come from Donald McCain's unbeaten gelding. Goohar may be the one to chase him home having finished third over course and debut on his debut last month. Stablemates Royal Palladium and Torgamah Lad have hinted at ability while Masquerade has gone close in a couple of bumpers but Devil's Dyke and Murtys Delight aren't improving.
