Verdict

Norfolk Sky was no match for Parlour Games at Market Rasen last month and the trainer of the latter has MY DIRECTION in this so has a line on Brian Barr's charge. McCoy's mount won by 23 lengths on his second start having run Collodi, who beat a decent sort at Market Rasen next time, to a neck on debut. Uriah Heep is a bit more exposed but was taking on strong opposition last time and shouldn't be written off just yet and is preferred to ex-pointer I No Understand and French import Northern Bay.
