Verdict

Bay Sly only found one too good on his UK debut over course and distance last month but the winner has been beaten subsequently. Beallandendall defied expectations with a big run here on his hurdles bow but will almost certainly do better when upped in trip given his point-to-point background. QUERRY HORSE (NAP) gave supporters of the useful Wait For Me a fright at Kempton in January and it was 20 lengths back to the rest - Oliver Sherwood's four-year-old should go one better here. Byron Flyer and Diamond Rock, the pick of Henry Oliver's two runners, look best of the remainder.
