Mark Johnston's SKY FALCON has not been too harshly punished by the handicapper for his win at Newcastle last month having only been raised 3lb and he can win again and complete a hat-trick with the main danger rated as Oliver's Gold. Amanda Perrett's colt showed improved form on his nursery debut at Epsom last week when narrowly beaten by Cometh over seven furlongs and he has every chance over an extra furlong racing off the same mark. Roger Charlton's Marzante is hard to weigh up first time in this grade after his win on soft ground at Ffos Las but he has to be considered as does the consistent Nothing To Hide but it is Sky Falcon that gets the verdict.
