Verdict

Exiles Return's sole success came in a weak event at Towcester in the spring and he's been pulled up in three of his last five starts. Tastevin was well beaten on his hurdling debut over C&D in April and looks very modest, while Kanturk disappointed in a Worcester bumper last month. Theatrical Star could be capable of better but this could rest between former pointers Go Get Em Kid and SLIGHTLY TANNED, with the latter getting the vote as he looked a nice prospect when scoring by four lengths at Askeaton in February.
