Verdict

Bishop Of Ruscombe is having his first outing since a third at Nottingham in October. But he hails from an in-form yard and is not easily dismissed. Ishiamber didn't show much improvement when fourth over track and trip last week, but BOWIE BOY finished closer when runner-up at Lingfield with French Accent well beaten. Ralph Beckett's colt gets the vote with further progress expected over this extra furlong. Lady Kathian has a bit more to find to figure but it's worth noting the newcomer Dreaming Brave in the betting.
