Verdict

Abnaki goes well for a claimer and Tommie O'Brien's 10lb allowance will aid his cause but namesake Tom O'Brien could hold all the aces aboard CYRIEN STAR. He hacked up at Wetherby and Haydock last month and can improve again to complete the hat-trick. Awaywiththegreys gets little respite from the handicapper but Lienosus has to be of interest going handicapping for the first time and is preferred to Heronry and the four-year-old Rapid Heat Lad. Nicky Nutjob is a couple of pounds out of the handicap and looks vulnerable in this grade.
