Verdict

COURT BALOO (NAP) continued his good progress when landing a hat-trick with last month’s course and distance success. He scored in soft ground earlier and Alistair Whillans’ charge may not have finished winning yet. Stablemate Kalaharry ended last season with a victory at Newcastle and will be sharper for a recent outing at Aintree and the same applies to Total Assets, placed over fences at Carlisle on her reappearance and racing off a lower mark back over timber. Niceandeasy gets additional headgear having failed to complete on his return to action and has yet to win a handicap.
