Verdict

Baker's Girl probably has the best form among those to have raced previously but that does not amount to a great deal and it will come as no surprise to see Lord of Sehayl make a winning debut and he gets the vote with Rathcor looking the best of the remainder. The selection takes the eye on pedigree and the Venetia Williams-trained gelding would not need to be anything out of the ordinary to make a winning start to his career. Captain Willoughby has been well held in both starts so far, while Lourd Hymn was pulled up in both starts in point-to-points and is hard to recommend. Checked Shirt gave little sign of encouragement on his debut and of more interest may be point winner Rathcor. This is a distinctly moderate contest though and Lord of Sehayl has solid claims on his debut.
