In depth

Verdict

A number of these arrive off the back of recent wins between the flags so the market should be monitored closely. Findlay's Find is a prolific point-to-point winner and easily landed the odds at Ledbury a week after putting Rosies Peacock in his place in a race in which Books Review refused three out when well beaten. Wiston Dreamer has the beating of Duc De Normandie while Two Shook Men looked a nice prospect last year but has been off the track for a while. Dunraven Prince probably needs to improve a little to play a part and Doc Wells may also be out of his depth but FLORIDAHALL looks one to follow. He won by 30 lengths on the bridle at Ystrad Taf Fechan earlier this month and should handle these stiffer fences.
