Verdict

Better was expected from Grandads Horse in a Listed race at Market Rasen last month but he still finished ahead of Owen Glendower and the return to 2m4f will help and it's too soon to write off the top weight just yet. The mare Tara Rose came good in the spring, winning at Bangor and Cheltenham, and may have more to offer but Rudemeister just scraped home at Hexham earlier this month while Golden Call may need this. No Planning and Riguez Dancer could figure on their return, however, though will do well to get the better of the progressive DORSET NAGA. He was well backed on his reappearance at Fontwell and didn't disappoint, beating the race-fit Synthe Davis on the bridle. He looks capable of following up in this higher grade.
