Verdict

BEAR BEHIND was campaigned in Listed company last season so the spectacular slide into plating class has to be noted, even though he has realised just one victory from his 22 career starts. Should he run anywhere near his peak, he would be much too good for these but two modest starts this term throws up the obvious question as to how much enthusiasm he retains. Cape Of Hope picked up a couple of races for Peter Chapple-Hyam last season and, while he's hardly set the world alight since joining David O'Meara, he should be match-fit. Beckermet continues to ply his trade and he could run well if conditions take a turn for the worse. Tarrsille was placed in handicaps when trained in Ireland but has disappointed for current connections.
