Verdict

YAIR HILL was a beaten favourite on his final two starts as a juvenile but is the type to improve as a three-year-old and looks to be facing a fairly straightforward task here in his effort to get off the mark. Hughie Morrison's representatives are always worth a second look at this track but newcomer Casternova doesn't look anything special on breeding, while Heavenly Pursuit only showed modest ability in a couple of runs last year. Indian Wish has been racing over further and may find a few of these have too much speed for her over this trip.
