Verdict

GAMBOL has taken time to start justifying his lofty sales price but the four-year-old finally appears to have got the hang of things and he is taken to follow up a recent victory at Doncaster. Highway Code is better known as a chaser these days though he proved he's no back number on the Flat with a solid third on his most recent start. Lineman continues his search for his first win on Turf having gone close recently at Nottingham. English Summer has been revitalised by the switch to Richard Fahey, and the seven-year-old put up a highly credible performance in defeat in a stronger race at Chester. Perfect Summer bombed out badly at Kempton Park and connections have taken their time to get to the bottom of any ills.
