Verdict

Summer Times was only beaten a head on debut at Catterick but was a big disappointment on a return visit to that track when long odds-on. He may be worth opposing here. Fullon Clarets was a decent second on his introduction at Catterick but that was over 5f and he may need more time before tackling the extra distance and Richard Fahey also runs Nottingham fifth Gideon Jukes. Flicka's Boy will be qualified for a nursery after this so we'll take a chance on TOOCOOLFORSCHOOL. The latter was third in what looked a decent contest at Nottingham last month with the fourth having already franked the form.
