Verdict

Tony McCoy has opted to ride Irish import It's A New Day instead of nicely-bred newcomer Get Back In Line but neither of the Jonjo O'Neill runners make much appeal in this. The lightly-raced Chat Room might just need this but former pointer Euro Trash is likely to be fully primed and Lydstep Point would be a danger to all if reproducing his run behind Puffin Billy at Newbury. IT'S OSCAR was beaten when falling at the last at Haydock but had led for a long way and may just be improving. He gets a tentative vote here though Mister Newby should step up on his debut second at Plumpton on this stiffer course.
