Verdict

SEE WHAT HAPPENS is being brought along quietly over fences and was held up well off the pace when third at Sedgefield on his reappearance. He stayed on well, however, and this may be the opportunity that connections have been waiting for as he could enjoy a fitness advantage over the likes of Opera Og and Morgan's Bay. Ballylifen remains a maiden under Rules and has his first start since July but Allerton is better than he showed at Huntingdon last month and could figure off a lowly weight.
