Verdict

BATTALION was beaten at odds-on at Leicester before only finishing fourth at Newbury and is in danger of becoming disappointing. But this won't take much winning so he's given a final chance as The Welsh Wizard isn't improving and Certification was beaten a long way when fourth on debut at Lingfield, though has plenty of scope. The older horses appear to have a mountain to climb.
