Verdict

Finnegan Paddy clearly stays well and went close at Catterick and Chepstow last season but he looks a chaser in the making and may need this. We'll stick with ON BROADWAY, who had already won a point-to-point over 3m on heavy ground before scoring over C&D in June. With ground conditions to suit again, he may be the one to beat. Rocking And Reelin has been beaten a long way in all five starts and appears modest so along with About Thyne and Papillon Parc, he'll need to improve significantly to trouble the principals.
