Verdict

BOBS WORTH's victory over Rock On Ruby in a Grade 2 here in January is looking a fine effort after the latter's tremendous run in the Neptune here on Wednesday and the decision to run him over the longer trip looks the correct one. Nicky Henderson's charge went better as the race progressed in that 2m5f contest and this stiffer test of stamina is just what is required. Champion Court was beaten a long way in that event but that wasn't his form as he had beaten a decent field in a similar event here in November. Court In Motion was surprisingly beaten by Back In Focus over this trip at Haydock in January but Emma Lavelle's charge should be suited by the quicker ground here and is rated better than that performance. Join Together looks a rapidly improving type who will be ideally suited by this stamina test as he was at Chepstow where he came home virtually alone in what looked a decent enough novices' event. Kilcrea Kim showed that a true test of stamina is his game when battling to victory in a tough handicap at Sandown and he's progressive enough to produce another big run despite a 10lb rise.
