Verdict

Brandon Castle ran a cracker from the front here earlier in the month and finished just over a length ahead of Siannes Star with Valentino Dancer last of the nine finishers. But the latter will improve for the run and Neil King’s trail-blazer has a big weight to carry. Normal Norman has a lot to prove at present while Fubar is still seeking a first victory. LUCKY ICON won at the Galway Festival at this time last year and has finally started to slip down the handicap after three runs for Philip Kirby so could be a bit of value ahead of stablemate Lord Roccoco and Illustrissime.
