Verdict

Flat-bred DIAMOND KING hosed up on his debut at Wetherby without being asked a serious question. The good ground should be no problem and he should be able to defy his penalty. When Ben When was second at Towcester last month, despite exhibiting signs of inexperience. He'll know more here while Fairweather Friend was third in a mares' race at Carlisle last month, though a bigger danger might be Rebecca Curtis' four-year-old Henry Vaughan as he's a half-brother to useful chaser Leanne. Flemensmix and Peter are nicely bred but may need more time.
