Verdict

Norfolk Sky scored bravely and well on his penultimate start at Wincanton but there must be a doubt about his participation as he's scheduled to run at Market Rasen yesterday at the big Summer Plate meeting. Should he come here, he'd be a leading player having fallen at the last when still leading at Fontwell last time over 2m4f. LASER BLAZER was disappointing on the Flat fifty days ago and Alan King has given him plenty of time to get over that strangely lethargic performance. Both hurdles efforts when third behind Sign Of A Victory and latterly Huff And Puff were promising runs and a repeat of either would see him hard to beat. The 7lb he receives from the topweight can prove decisive. John Ferguson unveils former Godolphin inmate, Invisible Hunter, who must be taken seriously on debut like so many from his yard.
