Verdict

Having come from well off the pace, Hereford scorer PAISLEY PARK (NAP) was closing on winner Mr Whipped in a Warwick Grade 2 last month. He looks a nice prospect and a line through Nicky Henderson’s smart novice gives him the edge of over Chepstow and Newbury runner-up Gowiththeflow, who represents last year’s winning stable. Secret Investor emptied quickly over 3m at Kempton last month so it’s no surprise to see him revert to this shorter distance. He’s a threat to all but this looks a tough start to the hurdling career of the nicely-bred Stylish Moment.
