Verdict

Arley Hall was runner-up on her racecourse debut at Doncaster earlier this month. She looks sure to make a bold bid today but could have been better drawn and STORMING BERNARD makes more appeal. He also finished runner-up last time in what looked a decent maiden at Newmarket and can go one better here. Tidal Way has solid claims and Amoure Medici produced a better effort at York last week, while it would be no surprise to see Gabrial's Gift finish closer here after a debut sixth at Yarmouth. Stature makes most appeal of the newcomers.
