    Verdict

    WILSON is penalised for winning at Brighton but beat the favourite Myboyhenry, rated 88, by over three lengths so Luca Cumani’s colt can go in again. Merkava was runner-up at Wolverhampton when in front of Laytown and the latter’s stablemate Dashing Dusty failed to show any progress last time along with Harbour Vision, having both finished closer on their earlier debuts. Kingofthesingers is related to a couple of winners and a newcomer to note.
