Verdict

DALE STREET has yet to win a race but keeps bumping into useful rivals as he did when runner-up to Pique Sous here last month. He'll enjoy the extra quarter-mile and should finally get off the mark. Zekarya will be a big threat if making further progress after his excellent run behind American Flyer at Tipperary and though Popmurphy hasn't done as well as expected over timber so far he was useful on the level and should be making his mark soon though he has a penalty for his Flat victory as does Absolute Heretic, who won in South Africa in 2010. Vincent Row has shown some promise in bumpers and has the scope to make a hurdler.
