Verdict

Herecomestrouble is the only one of the quintet to have faced the starter and as he was 50/1 on that occasion, it probably won't require an earth shattering performance from any of the others to beat him. WESTERN WAY is a half-brother to a winning bumper performer and while genuinely fast ground might be against him on pedigree, he should possess the necessary class to cope with it. Tim Vaughan's horses are running well so Bennachie is rated a danger. A half-brother to a three-time winner over hurdles, he appears a useful prospect on paper. Marina Blue is closely related to a winning Irish pointer but she realised just 2000 guineas when offered at Doncaster last year.
