Verdict

This is as wide-open as it first appears and a market check is advised. Dragon's Den is starting to knock on the door again while the lightly-raced Here's Herbie scored by 10 lengths over course and distance at the start of the month. Grand Gold, who has been in action on the all-weather, is also unexposed over timber and Decoy is thrown in on his best form. Angles Hill, Quick Decisson and Urcalin are others with the past form to figure with Phone Home, Sun Wild Life and Fond Memory also catching the eye. HENRYVILLE was a little clumsy back over hurdles at Fontwell 11 days ago but still won easily enough. He might be improving and is taken to defy a 7lb higher mark.
