Verdict

There's no reason why Northern Water won't confirm Beverley running on Sunday with Innocently but whether he'll find the necessary improvement required to go one better here is debatable. MUSPELHEIM finished last on his nursery debut at Thirsk but the extra furlong was a legitimate excuse. He looked a progressive individual when scoring earlier over this trip at Carlisle and is just preferred to Money Team, who is also better over 5f and has been quite highly tried in his first season but carries a little extra courtesy of his two wins to date.
