Verdict

The market will be the best guide to the chances of the returning Arabian Heights, Vengeur De Guye and Young Palm while Heist makes his racecourse debut, though is by Galileo and a full brother to a hurdles winner. Though failing to confirm earlier running with Handmaid here last time, NEVER NEVER looks the one to be on as course and distance winner Dr Moloney has already been tried over fences and his future may lie in that sphere.
