Verdict

Mile House is another point-to-point recruit for Robert Stephens but may well find 2m here too sharp whilst Rock On Bollinski showed some promise in three bumpers but will need to answer harder questions if he's going to get on the scoresheet. Christmas Cracker has a very lengthy absence to deal with but does represent one of the top summer yards and requires a market check. However, this looks one for the champion jockey courtesy of OZZY THOMAS, backed into favouritism on his bumper debut when staying out stoutly to score. He seems sure to improve for that first experience at Worcester and should be more than good enough to follow up under similar conditions.
