Verdict

ASKER is only Marcus Tregoning's third-ever runner under NH Rules and sports blinkers on his racecourse debut. However, the Lambourn trainer has engaged AP McCoy to partner his High Chaparral gelding, who is closely related to the very smart hurdler Celestial Halo. He gets the nod ahead in this field of newcomers ahead of Alasi's full brother Go Limpopo. No No Charlie is another who makes plenty of appeal on breeding.
