Verdict

King's Revenge, Laustra Bad and Lester Leaps in look the main protagonists in this competitive opener and the vote is given to King's Revenge. The selection won well last time out when beating Ushnu with plenty in hand he again has conditions to suit and although this is more competitive he looks progressive and he looks the one to be on. Laustra Bad rates the main danger on his latest third behind Gaspara, that form has since been franked and he will not be far away but he will do well to give weight and a beating to the selection. Lester Leaps In won well last time out when beating Cantabilly but this looks tougher. Soulard has ran with promise and is another that could go well but he may be seen to better effect once handicapped. This is a trappy affair and stakes should be kept to a minimum but for the winner we return to King's Revenge.
