Verdict

A tight handicap to close proceedings and Sir Mark Prescott's excellent record here swings the vote in favour of LION COURT. He's no stable star but won't have to improve much on his second at Yarmouth last month to land this. Golden Creek had the rest well beaten when runner-up here last time and has solid claims, while William Haigh won his maiden at this track in May before a couple of dire efforts on turf. Cheylesmore has improved since he last raced on the Fibresand and could figure, but the remaining pair look up against it.
