Verdict

AGENT ARCHIE was highly tried after winning a couple of times last winter and hinted at a revival at Bangor last time. On today's going, he makes more appeal than the versatile Stormy Weather, who finished ahead of Indepub and Hi Dancer at Cartmel 12 days ago. Lisbon may have gone off the boil judged on his latest third at Perth while Mount Vesuvius carries a penalty for his win in a much lower grade at Stratford and is likely to find a few of these too strong.
