Verdict

Tae Kwon Do is starting to look very well treated and it would be no surprise to see Tim Vaughan's seven-year-old play a part in this. But Michael Winters hasn't sent MOON PRINCE over for the good of his health. He just scrambled home over 3m at Tipperary nine days ago having travelled strongly for most of the race but is lightly raced for his age and may have enough to defy a 7lb penalty. The Good Guy seems better over fences nowadays while Marie Deja La is thoroughly exposed but Perfect Timing was well backed at Sedgefield last time and may be a bit better than his bare form suggests.
