Verdict

Dual course and distance winner CLINGER FLAME has a double penalty to deal with but sets a strong standard for a yard that continues to impress and it's hard to oppose the hat-trick seeker here. He looks to be progressing with racing and rates a decent prospect for the Richards team. Lord Roccoco does receive a hefty amount of weight but this is his first outing over timber after showing glimpses of promise in bumper company. Ask Jd has a 400-day absence to overcome whilst Barfly has been pulled up on both starts since landing an Irish point over a year ago when with Peter Fahey.
