Verdict

The penny dropped with Porthos Du Vallon last time as he produced his best effort so far with a second over 7f here. Art Obsession is less exposed and finished a promising second at Ayr on his debut in soft ground. The latter should figure if as effective on this faster surface but the vote goes to MINDBLOWING. Kevin Ryan's charge showed a big improvement when a close-up third at Redcar last week and can open his account in this. Stablemates Insaany and Mariners Moon have some catching up to do to figure as does Layla's Red Devil.
