Verdict

EL BEAU has plenty in hand with The Grumpy Gnome on official ratings and went close over track and trip last time. He handles soft going and can finally get off the mark. Rainbow Rock has more scope but will need to improve on his previous efforts at Newmarket to figure while Scurr Mist was still beaten eight lengths despite finishing third at Newcastle last week. The remainder are hard to fancy on what little they've shown so far.
