Verdict

Acapulco Bay came in for market support at Warwick 10 days ago but could only finish fourth. This is a similarly uninspiring contest, however, and he must go on the short-list along with Missionaire who beat all bar Drawn Free at Plumpton on his latest start over hurdles and has been placed twice on the Polytrack since. He looks a better bet than stablemate Mujamead. DECENT LORD doesn't always find a great deal under pressure but may well have won at Wetherby last month had he enjoyed more luck and is almost guaranteed to give supporters a run for their money in this big field. Taunton fourth Illegale could be improving and is also interesting.
