Verdict

SONNY B ploughed through the mud to score over the course and distance in March and providing the going remains on the easy side he can follow up from 6lb higher. Todd landed a Limerick maiden from subsequent winner Lord Adare and doesn't look badly treated for his handicap debut while Suffren made a bold bid to add to his lone victory over timber when just failing to catch Rightville Boy at Limerick. Bearly Legal was having his first start for almost two years when a good fourth over fences at Down Royal in March and is expected to go well along with Tipped Up Harry, who is best at around this trip and found 3m too far last time.
