Verdict

This looks a tricky finale as Morestead is more than a little quirky and has finished tailed off at Chepstow and in a jumpers' bumper at Kempton this month. Another Trump is another with a mind of his own and he's better over further on a faster surface while Sir Frank still has plenty to prove over fences. Sawpit Supreme never seems to run two races alike while Cool Touch is still a maiden over fences, though was clear when falling two out in a selling hurdle over further here last time. ARTHUR'S PASS was pulled up on his chasing debut but that came after a long break. He didn't do a lot wrong when winning a novices' handicap over today's track and trip next time and, with further improvement likely, should be hard to beat again as Refusal isn't really getting any closer.
