Verdict

ECHOES OF DAWN is chanced in an open finale. Howard Johnson has his horses in good form and this expensive purchase is expected to improve with another summer under his belt. Qoest Eclair needs a market check with a solid reappearance at Carlisle likely to have brought him on, and along with Auberge and Iris's Flyer is respected. The chaser Bow School looks fairly handicapped, whilst The Magic Bishop is well-related and is not discounted despite a modest year so far. Aghill, Nobby Kivambo and Major Miller can all have a case made for them, a comment that also applies to the visored-first time Lady De La Vega.
