Verdict

McCoy's presence on board last week's Warwick third Ninepointsixthree will no doubt attract followers but STIFF UPPER LIP has more scope. Oliver Sherwood's colt may do better when the ground dries out a little but showed promise on his debut at Warwick last month and has the beating of Strong Conviction. It's difficult to make a serious case for any of the others including newcomers Cherry Tiger and Theionlady.
