Verdict

ACT OF KALANISI has raced at a high level over timber including Grade and Listed events. He made a satisfactory start over fences behind Hadrian's Approach at Ascot and looks the type to make a useful chaser. Ciceron, another who raced in good class over timber, showed nothing on his chasing debut and could need more experience while the lightly-raced Balinroab, a winning point-to-pointer, may also need this after a break. Court In Session and Tindaro are penalised for winning minor races over fences and could struggle to concede weight to the selection.
