Verdict

Halo Moon made an impressive debut in a Towcester bumper last December and though running poorly on his reappearance at Uttoxeter last month that wasn't his true form. O Ma Lad may have found Catterick too sharp on his debut over timber in December then won his next two starts on the Flat. He's been running in strong company this summer and looks a threat to all. Kodicil is very consistent on the Flat and made a reasonable start over hurdles at Hexham early last month where he looked in need of further. Ivan Boru made all on good ground at Kelso and will be difficult to catch though a penalty may just prove too much. CLUES AND ARROWS was purchased for £45,000 after landing a point at Ballysteen in April and could prove to be a shrewd purchase so gets the vote to make a successful debut under Rules.
