Verdict

Kings Destiny was a Listed performer on the Flat for Michael Jarvis and while he's still a maiden over timber for Nicky Henderson, it may be a little premature to be writing him off just yet. The handicapper has forced Jonjo O'Neill's hand with CUT THE CARDS and with the six-year-old likely to go up a fair bit for his victories at Ffos Las and at Southwell, we'll take him to rattle up his hat-trick. Quinsman has endured a losing battle with the handicapper since winning a couple of races last term, although the assessor has consented to drop him 12lb in the interim. Odin was a useful handicapper with David Elsworth while Dont Take Me Alive is in decent heart following a win at Market Rasen. Both horses would see their chances appreciate greatly if the forecast rain arrives.
