Verdict

The booking of Simon Walker is a frequent starting point for devotees of amateur contests and he partners SERGIO LEONE here for the Hannon team. The three-year-old remains a potential improver after just five career starts and has not been disgraced on his last two outings and is now on a career-low mark. He is a narrow preference over Oud Metha Bridge partnered by the capable Ross Birkett. The Fielden inmate is hallmarked by his consistency and would have a major chance if able to translate his all-weather form to Turf as he's rated no less than a stone lower on the grass. Hawridge Glory is a player at his best but is quiet at present and the consistent Cayuga completes the shortlist.
