Verdict

BLUE HERON, a half-brother to a winning bumper, was only beaten half-a-length on his racecourse debut over course and distance last month and is likely to be a short price to go one better today. Game Dorabella has shown little so far so the danger will probably come from one of the newcomers. Paolozzi is by Oscar and half-brother to a winning chaser. He may need more time but Hannah Just Hannah has a bit of speed in her pedigree and could do better than Home For Tea and Hughesie on this occasion.
