Verdict

This appears less competitive than the first division and Newbury fifth Vrai Vert should make a bold bid to recapture the winning thread, despite his penalty. Turn Over Sivola has shown promise in all three starts and was taking on better opposition at Newbury last month, but does have something to find with Kalani King on that run and Anthony Honeyball's charge will strip fitter here. Tiqris and More Talk have won between the flags but a number of newcomers in this are well worth a second look. IRISH BUCCANEER has a very decent NH pedigree, being from the same family as the smart Supreme Prince, and looks the pick of his stable's two runners. He gets the vote ahead of fellow debutant Rum And Butter.
