Verdict

Stratford winner Azure Fly is exposed and may struggle under a penalty but Worcester scorer Floral Spinner is capable of further improvement and Benefit Of Youth is likely to develop with further experience. Va'vite has to be thereabouts but UP FOR AN OSCAR didn't do a lot wrong on debut at Market Rasen and will know more today. Noel Quinlan's five-year-old can open his account, though Kalmbeforethestorm could be a threat and a market move for Mister Hendre would be significant given his yard's tremendous record with bumper horses.
