Verdict

An interesting maiden where SAM NOMBULIST looks a likely sort on pedigree and with Scarcroft based, Richard Whitaker, in such good nick - he represents likely value at the odds of reward. Red Riverman came up against a decent type first time out at Newmarket and it would be no surprise to see him go close today. Man Of The Match was the subject of a hefty gamble on debut and he appeared as if the experience will not have been lost upon him. Cotton Spirit is surely better than the level of form he exhibited at York whilst Dressing Room is likely to be much better for time on his back.
