Verdict

Plein Pouvoir was beaten 10 lengths in this race last year off today's mark and is likely to find at least a couple too good again. Palace Jester is tumbling down the weights but needs to brush up his jumping while Shake The Barley was well beaten on his return from a lengthy absence. It would be no surprise to see Nom de Guerre improve for a set of blinkers but Addiction and Financial Climate both look high enough in the weights and Dunkelly Castle hasn't raced since the autumn. THOMAS WILD only won by a short-head at Newton Abbot but looks the type to run up a sequence in the summer months and Micheal Nolan's claim is a big plus in his favour - he is the one to beat.
