Verdict

Point-to-point winner THE SKYFARMER was only beaten a head at Ascot on his debut in a bumper and went close again at Kempton last time. He's preferred to Trillerin Minella and Solstice Son and can open his account. Duke's Affair looks a threat on his first start at Chepstow when finishing third but showed disturbing signs of temperament at Exeter last time when practically pulling himself up in the closing stages. Presenting The Way is a half-brother to a winner over fences and is one to note on his debut along with Cup Final.
