Verdict

SIMARTHUR was only beaten three lengths on his debut under Rules at Carlisle and Lucinda Russell's grey can go one better here. Bob's Lady Tara, Tough Trade, Be Wise and Dancing Lamb were all well behind and will struggle to turn the form around but there are possibilities about Tim Vaughan's points winner King Rolfe and he's much preferred to Sedgefield third New Academy with Cheeky Cherokee probably best of the rest.
