Verdict

Prince Tam goes well here but tends to struggle in this grade. Haydock second Tahiti Pearl has to be considered, however, as he looks to have improved this season and should again take care of old rival Bhaltair. But the vote goes to ROS CASTLE, who made an impressive debut over the larger obstacles at Kelso and can only improve. Rose Dobbin has wasted no time putting him in a handicap. Knockavilla may be best of the rest with both Pamak D'Airy and Overlaw returning from a break.
