Verdict

Lac Sacre won twice in minor company in France before joining Tony Carroll, who hasn't been able to work his magic on him though he's competed at a much higher level. PERSIAN HERALD can take this as he gained his first success over hurdles on his 16th start at Fakenham last month and was narrowly beaten when stepped up in trip at Stratford. A Little Bit Dusty hasn't shown much since joining Conor Dore but has a career strike-rate of 10-34 as though he's very moderate but knows how to battle. Eyeline has gone close to winning on a couple of occasions on the Flat but is still a maiden after 25 starts while I Told You So has been well beaten in two starts since joining Donald McCain from Ireland.
