Verdict

Prideofthecastle has joined David Pipe since winning at Limerick in December but faces no easy task here giving weight to several possible improvers. The Road Ahead was second here on her debut hasn't raced since finishing fourth at Wincanton the following month. Midnight Chorister was third at Southwell in March but ALGERNON PAZHAM's run behind Lemony Bay at Huntingdon looks better form and he can open his account here.
