Verdict

Attention Seaker was an easy winner over 2m4f here last week. The going may not be quite as testing today and that could count against Tim Easterby’s charge, who is penalised. Iolani won the first division of the same handicap in a slightly slower time and also carries 7lb extra. For Three was in good form at Hexham in the spring and looks progressive but Wishfull Dreaming ended the last campaign over fences and that is where his long-term future lies. The going may be too testing for Fisher Green so we’ll give a tentative vote to MINT GOLD, who probably produced another career-best when third at Perth on his reappearance and is still at the right end of the handicap.
