Verdict

COURT RED HANDED found life tough against the likes of Frascati Park last time and now concedes weight all round dropped notably in class. He certainly sets the standard on his best form when a fine third in the Tommy Whittle behind Carrington Brook, prior to which he had looked a really progressive performer. He can get back on the winning track here, with Clash Duff looking his main threat. The winning Irish pointer revealed plenty of potential for the future when a good second to State Benefit at Exeter and should give the selection something to think about in receipt of 10lb. Supreme De Paille offers up mixed form messages, having pulled up last time in a much better race at Kempton, before which he had outpointed Kauto The Roc at this venue. He should also be in the shake-up if getting the trip on this first attempt at three miles.
