Verdict

Viacometti won a small race at Perth in May but NO NO ROMEO showed plenty of promise when second to Roll On Ruby at Worcester in the same month and can put that experience to good use here. Secure Investment, fourth on his debut at Bangor, is another with plenty of scope while newcomers to consider include Forthefunofit, one of three saddled by Jonjo O'Neill, and the well-bred Paddy Mulligan.
