Verdict

Hughie Morrison tries TUNNAGER GROVE in first-time blinkers and hopefully they will have the desired effect. He made his debut in this grade over the C&D last month and was narrowly beaten by Marford Missile. He'll be unlucky to come up against one as good and should get off the mark. Percythepinto has won a couple of minor races, one of them a seller on Fibresand at Southwell, and has run well enough on his two latest starts to be a threat along with Foursquare Funtime, who won a Class 5 handicap at Beverley in July and has generally run in better grade. The C&D winner Barista looks best of the remainder.
