Verdict

All have fair claims one way or another but IONA DAYS is a thoroughly reliable, honest sort guaranteed to run his race. He's also proved his ability around this quirky circuit in the past and should give us a good run for our money. Lamboro Lad continues to suggest that he's better than his form figures indicate and was still going nicely when coming to grief last time. He's fairly treated at his best, whilst Olympian Boy is enjoying a consistently good campaign and should go well despite a 9lb hike. Allanard has also been hit with an 8lb rise for a June success and remains of interest.
