Verdict

ST BARTHS very much caught the eye on his introduction at Newbury. He may well have won that day had he not been hampered when beginning his challenge and compensation awaits here. Roman Soldier and Singalat are both capable of improving on promising first efforts while Verbeeck was well backed when third on debut at Bath, though this is a potentially much stronger heat. Bounty Seeker and Telwaar could be interesting newcomers, though the former will probably do better over longer trips later in the year.
