Verdict

Despite plenty of runners, RED TYKE stands out as the only winner in the field. He won a nursery in testing ground at Ayr when stepped up to today's trip and there should be more to come from him over this distance. Man Of My Word has experience of the track but has been beaten a long way on all three starts here, while New Romantic's worst run so far came on this surface. It's hard to make a case for any of the remainder unless the Fibresand brings a big improvement from the likes of More Bottle and Son Of May.
