Verdict

A few of these could go on to better things but Dubai Prince will need to settle better than he did at Kempton, where he was eventually pulled up. Varom didn't appear to stay 2m4f at Haydock last time and is capable of better while Mister Jones ran better than the final result suggests on his hurdling debut at Carlisle and should improve. I Got Power has ability and Area Fifty One is a very interesting newcomer from a powerful yard having won six times on the Flat over 1m2f and 1m3f. PEARL CASTLE was beaten more than 20 lengths on his debut over timber at Wetherby but the first two are well above average and John Quinn's four-year-old will know more today - he can land this.
