Verdict

Will Biddick is a very accomplished amateur and will fancy his chances here on board Ballyoliver, who was runner-up on his reappearance at Ludlow. He has won over 3m between the flags but both of his victories under Rules came over shorter distances. We just prefer REY NACARADO, an out-and-out stayer who likes soft ground and is capable of picking these off up the home straight. Present To You finally got off the mark over 3m4f at Stratford and should be prominent again but Minella Stars often flatters to deceive and Hunters Lodge is probably in the handicapper's grip now.
