Verdict

TULLYS TOUCH has one of his market rivals, Laser Beam, back in fifth when making a winning return to action in an Open at High Easter nine days ago. He placed over track and trip last year on his only previous run under Rules and Jack Andrews can steer him home in front today. Streets Of London has won eight times between the flags so can’t be ignored but it’s more difficult to make a case for Sense Of Adventure and Bombay Basil.
