Verdict

Harry Hurricane is weighted to reverse running with Leicester winner FLYBALL. But the latter fought back well having been headed at one point and he gets the vote with further progress expected for a yard that has won five of the last 10 renewals. Abscent Friends will find this tougher than the maiden contest he won at Southwell and one of the newcomers could prove a bigger threat. Of those, Portamento is related to a winner in North America and Mind Of Madness has plenty of speed in his pedigree.
