Verdict

Blue Kascade, Blueside Boy, Sharivarry and Sorcier are all winners between the flags. Araku Valley and Lord Usher both showed promise on their racecourse debuts while My Mum Mo was second at Stratford in September and seemed unsuited by the slow pace at Sedgefield next time. GLINGERBURN is by prolific sire King's Theatre and a half-brother to winning hurdlers Aegean Dawn and Fleet Dawn. He can make a winning start to his career though Clever Cookie, a half-brother to three winners, is also worth noting on debut.
