Verdict

Paloma's Prince showed promise on debut behind a useful sort in Huff and Puff and should progress from that while Bushel will be popular for John Ferguson but has not yet looked one of the yard's leading lights. Nicky Henderson saddles Grey Blue whose Flat form emits mixed signals but he remains lightly-raced over timber and could well be better than he's shown so far. ROCKMOUNT RIVER, a German import for David Bridgewater, shaped really well on debut for his new yard when runner-up to the progressive Chase The Wind at Stratford on the last day of last month. He stuck on well behind a good sort and cleared away from the rest. Normal progression should see the Rock Of Gibraltar gelding go close.
