Verdict

BOSCAGE can maintain his unbeaten record at the main expense of Electric Warrior and United Nations. The selection's belated debut earlier this month saw him sent off a well backed favourite so he had presumably been showing plenty at home and his supporters weren't disappointed. There should be more to come from him as he did run green in the final furlong and he has the scope to take this. Faithful Ruler is in good form and has run well here in the past but he is engaged to run at Kempton on Monday and it remains to be seen how he fares there. Electric Warrior has been kept to claiming company for most of the year which has seen his handicap mark slip to a realistic level. Connections presumably feel that it is workable now hence the return to this company but he could find the unexposed horses have too many guns. United Nations' latest run can be ignored and he should fare far better over a course and distance over which he has scored three times but he may need a little respite before he can score again. That's not the case with the selection and Boscage is taken to score.
