Verdict

HUMBLE HERO is penalised but easily sets the standard on his third to the smart Getaway Trump at Sandown in April, though won’t be much of a price. Bon Calvados was showing progressive form in bumpers in the spring while Ballinsker won a maiden point in April, though may find this too sharp. A similar comment applies to Evander but he looks the pick of Oliver Greenall’s pair.
