Verdict

We'll give FINGAL'S CAVE one final chance to get off the mark as his overall form is easily the best on offer. There doesn't appear to be much wrong with his attitude and he got this trip well enough last time at Chester. He had also finished almost three lengths ahead of Little Palaver at Ffos Las earlier. Rockaroundtheclock may do better in handicaps but Edge Of Heaven should go well again having only found one too good in two starts on the all-weather. Thorkhill Star and the once-raced pair Jen Jos Enigma and Perceived appear the pick of the remainder.
