Verdict

The booking of AP McCoy for Zelkova Island catches the eye as Paul Henderson's former pointer ran a fine race behind the prolific Home Run at Wincanton. Market Option has been knocking on the door and Farbreaga has won at Fontwell and Lingfield this season and finished ahead of WINGS OF ICARUS in a conditionals' race at Sandown in between. David Pipe's charge is now 10lb better off, however, and Timmy Murphy takes over the reins today. He wasn't disgraced behind De La Bech in a better race at Ascot next time and could finally break his duck over hurdles if first-time blinkers have the desired effect. No Likey and Long Wave may be best of the rest.
