Verdict

A Good Skin continues to run well and will probably pop up in one of these staying chases before the season is out. Warrantor must go close if reproducing his second in a Grade 3 here in November when Doctor Harper and Any Currency were behind. Vyta Du Roc was sixth in the Hennessy after a pipe-opener over hurdles and Lamb Or Cod won a competitive affair at Chepstow. But the third that day, KINGSWELL THEATRE, is now 8lb better off and Michael Scudamore’s charge can reverse placings over this longer trip and open his account for the season. Arpege D'alene was second in a novice event over these fences last month but may find a lack of experience counting against him in this and the much longer trip could catch out Sizing Codelco.
