Verdict

The former Alan Berry-trained Clare Harrier will have his supporters despite being confined to Polytrack on his recent starts and now on his highest ever mark. Badger Daly has never won on Turf but is very well handicapped as a consequence though he was behind Only Exception over a mile here last time and the latter is running well enough to get into the shake-up. ROTER BARON was having only his sixth start when runner-up at Dundalk where the 7f looked too sharp. He's on the sort of mark his trainer can exploit and he can gain his first success. Beart has been running reasonably well at Dundalk so a return to Turf from a lowly mark should bring about a revival.
