Verdict

Ros Castle won on very heavy ground at Kelso before a very good effort at Newcastle where the going may just have been too quick. HIGHRATE didn't have too much to do to make a winning chase debut at Hexham but jumped well and did it nicely. There's more to come and he can follow-up though Prince Buster's experience could count over these fences and Weston Lodge is better than he's shown to date. Sandynow could prove the main threat as he loves heavy ground and will be better for a recent run at Warwick, his first since May.
