Verdict

Sizing Tennessee will almost certainly be very popular here in view of the excellent strike rate of his yard in such contests and he looked one for the future when a fair fourth of 19 on his debut behind Clondaw Kaemper last April. The market should reflect stable confidence, whilst Isle View ran a pleasing race on his Down Royal bumper debut last month when runner-up to Apache Stronghold. Time Please looks the most interesting of the newcomers and merits a market check but it's REDUNDANT MAN who sets the standard and gets the nod. Dessie Hughes' charge ran really well here last time on heavy ground behind the gambled-on O Maonlai when comfortably clear of the third. That was a progressive effort and he can go one better here.
