Verdict

MR TYRRELL has it to do under 10-3 but will be assisted by the claim of Seamus Cronin and still makes appeal despite the concession of weight all round. He appears improved as a 4-y-o and his consistency may prove decisive in a tight handicap. Reggae Runner came good at Bath and is respected but is always likely to throw in a disappointing one here and there. He's dangerous on a going day. Lyndon B has done nothing wrong in maiden/novice events and looks nicely enough treated going into handicaps. Hold Still is held by Reggae Runner on recent running but Silkstone continues to deliver a good account over 8-10f and rates the main danger off a fair mark of 78.
