Verdict

Most of these will probably turn up in a seller sooner rather than later but it’s hard to knock the form of FLANAGANS FIELD this year, especially here. Very heavy ground wouldn’t be ideal but Bernard Llewellyn’s nine-year-old is the one to beat. Hurricane Rita didn’t enjoy much luck in-running when favourite for her reappearance at Towcester and is a danger but chaser Steel Native is 0-10 over timber. Hands Of Stone has disappointed so far while Princess Roania was behind the selection here last month.
