Verdict

Lost Legend, hoisted 10lb by the assessor for the second of two wins this term, then ran unaccountably badly when tailed off at Market Rasen last time. He has the ability to go close but remains far from predictable and is passed over off topweight. Grey Soldier was pulled up in the big Listed chase at Market Rasen on Saturday won by Bobowen and is probably best watched on that evidence. Donald McCain's ATLANTA FALCON looks a progressive handicapper for the top northern yard and his battling defeat of the highly prolific On The Bridge last time was a splendid effort. More is expected over fences and he is a confident selection to continue his progression over the larger obstacles.
