Verdict

Another bumper turn-out with Mister Dillon and Cross Kennon out to boost the form of last month's Pertemps Final. Mister Dillon's stablemate Heronry arrives off the back of a victory in a conditionals' race at Ascot when Azure Fly was third. Trackmate may need this but Kayserberg, Berkeley Barron and Minellahalfcentury are others with recent winning form to their name. Imperial Leader's run at Kempton last time was too bad to be true as he'd earlier finished third to Fingal Bay over this longer trip at Exeter and has claims on that run. UPSWING found the step up to 3m1f at Newbury last time to his liking and he stayed on well to score. He's only been raised 4lb and Maurice Linehan's claim takes care of that so there's no reason why Jonjo O'Neill's six-year-old won't be in the firing-line again here as he has more to offer.
