Verdict

A low-grade affair in which a chance is taken with the Tregoning maiden SWEEPING ROCK. Tailed off on his final start last term, the Rock Of Gibraltar colt had previously looked progressive at a moderate level and has been given a good break since that disappointment. Wedding Speech is another lightly-raced sort who may have more to offer this campaign after just the five career starts to date. Anabel Murphy's Irish import Crouching Harry has shown enough in his native land to be a consideration, while Herbalist is not ruled out after a series of solid efforts in modest company. However, Gary Moore has his string in fine form and Anjuna Beach could well emerge as the prime threat as he looked quite useful at this level on his penultimate start when scoring at Kempton.
