Verdict

GARTER KNIGHT is good enough to land this seller with both Fong's Alibi and Wabi Sabi worth noting. The selection is only lightly raced and still a maiden after four outings. He ran well to finish fourth of fifteen at Nottingham in a handicap on his latest outing in April. This will be his first run against selling company and therefore his easiest opportunity to date, and if he can reproduce his best form he will not be far away come the business end of the race. Fong's Alibi won a handicap on the all weather at Lingfield back in February but has been a little disappointing since. Connections have decided to drop him into this selling grade for the first time so any support in the market should be noted. Wabi Sabi looks a little exposed on what he has achieved to date. He has been soundly beaten in the grade and will need to show further improvement to trouble the judge. Garter Knight is an unexposed individual and is taken to get his head in font for the first time in his career.
