Verdict

Mister Dillon has already won over further at Lingfield and Southwell and will make a bold bid to complete his hat-trick with Jeremiah McGrath's claim negating his penalty. But preference is for BLACK THUNDER, who split subsequent Kempton winners Tetlami and Knight Pass on his hurdling debut at Sandown at the start of the month and will have improved for the experience. Captain Sunshine and Talkonthestreet look interesting recruits but Moorland Sunset has more to do than when successful at Exeter, though that form has been franked.
