Verdict

Sound Judgment hinted at ability in a couple of runs in the autumn but Forever My Friend, only beaten a head on his debut at Aintree earlier this month, easily looks the pick of those with previous experience and has the beating of Leath Acra Mor. A couple of newcomers also catch the eye here however namely Douchkirk who is a half-brother to the versatile Kadochski, and MASTER BENJAMIN. Jeremy Scott's gelding has a solid NH pedigree and has more potential than the majority of these.
