Verdict

Marti Ella makes no appeal on breeding and Powerfulstorm finished tailed off on her debut. DOUGAL looks to have the strongest form of the remaining trio after finishing runner-up in soft ground at Windsor last week. This faster surface should suit and the Hannon colt gets the nod ahead of Ar Colleen Aine and Brown Velvet, placed at Kempton and Yarmouth respectively on their recent introductions.
