Verdict

The ground is likely to prove much too fast for Jamaican Bolt but the in-form Sleepy Blue Ocean likes it quick, though is upped in class for this. Noodles Blue Boy has gone up 5lb for beating Moorhouse Lad at Musselburgh and finished behind Another Wise Kid at Ponterfract earlier. But he has won off higher marks in the past and is probably more interesting than veteran Tax Free at the weights. DUNGANNON hasn't won for more than two years and needs a fast pace to be effective at this trip. But he should get that here with Blanc De Chine and Doctor Parkes among several who like to force the pace. Andrew Balding's six-year-old can reverse Sandown running with the latter on 8lb better terms and pounce late to land this with neither Stone Of Folca nor Captain Dunne having shown much recently.
