Verdict

A desperate affair which Osric would have won in a canter in his heyday with Nicky Henderson. Unfortunately, he's been difficult to train in recent years though the booking of McCoy here is a positive sign. Belle De Fontenay has to go on the short-list, despite racing for the first time since January, while Callhimwhatyouwant drops into a seller for the first time but has shown his best form so far over fences. Noel Kelly sends MIGHTY WHITEY over from County Derry and, though he's no world-beater, the seven-year-old has enough form in better races to suggest he should return home with the majority of the modest prize money.
