Verdict

On Tour won by five lengths over course and distance on his debut under Rules but faces several with plenty of potential in this and has a penalty to carry now. Letterofthelaw, Monbeg Theatre and Monart Diamond have all shown ability between the flags - the latter winning at Taylorstown in May - but it's difficult to get away from SIGN OF A VICTORY today. He was fourth in an Aintree bumper in May won by Regal Diamond, who was just touched off on his hurdling debut at Chepstow recently. The second and third in that Aintree race won next time so the form looks rock-solid. When Ben When can do better than at Bangor in April but newcomer Bellucia may be a better long-term prospect.
