Verdict

This is much tougher than the race Bayan Kasirga won at Musselburgh during the week and another three-year-old, DOLPHIN VILLAGE, is preferred. He, too, will need further improvement having won a qualifying event for this over track and trip last month but has more scope than the opposition. Richard Fahey's charge gets the nod ahead of Yasir, who only beat Gran Maestro a short-head in a claimer earlier in the year while it was only an amateurs' race that Ailsa Craig picked up at Haydock last time but he's been raised 9lb regardless. O Ma Lad recorded an early-season double but has shown little in a couple of subsequent starts since returning from a lay-off.
