Verdict

Mister Nibbles has been unable to build on his opening victory at Down Royal last June and his penalty makes him vulnerable. Wintered Well is also penalised for his short-head success over Wild West at Market Rasen last May but, though the long absence is a concern, he's shown he can win first time out. DR DALWHINNY is bred to be a smart middle-distance performer on the Flat and with his allowances a big plus he's taken to make a winning start to his career. Gold Futures' pedigree is all about jumping and he's one to watch for the future.
