Verdict

MR WAGYU is highly respected. He has a good draw, remains in excellent form and displays a good attitude to his work. Not unduly punished by the assessor for his recent flow of excellent form, he could well make it four from the last five. Ginbar came back to form after a quiet period the last day and a repeat run would see the course and distance winner a leading contender. Charming Guest doesn't have many miles on the clock and was progressing nicely enough until finding the move to Class 2 company too demanding . She's down two levels now and is expected to give a good account from the plum draw. Gabrial The Devil retains maiden status but is running consistently well and looks feasible off this mark with Connor Murtagh's 5lb claim enhancing his chance .
