Verdict

All of these have already shown some ability. Benzel led for a long way on his debut under Rules at Doncaster while Rossoneri only found one too good at Market Rasen in November. THEMANFROM MINELLA gave the impression a step up in distance was required when third to Diamond King over 2m at Doncaster in January. He gets a tentative vote ahead of Glowinginthedark, who hasn't really built on a debut second at Carlisle. Silver Gent was odds-on for a Sedgefield bumper in January but found the trip too short. He should win races and may hold a fitness advantage over another winning pointer Pirates Cay.
