Verdict

This is unlikely to prove a race that will live long in the memory. NAT LOVE is the most exposed but the one to beat on his second in a Newbury nursery two runs ago. Moorland Spirit may not have enjoyed the soft going last time at Salisbury but an earlier third at Brighton was nothing special, though the other others with experience have looked modest to date and neither of the newcomers makes much appeal on breeding.
