Verdict

KNIGHT SHIELD made a winning start at Windsor last month and the Haggas colt may well defy a penalty in this modest company with normal progress. Striding Edge will likely improve for last month’s debut effort at Kempton and a winner has already come out of the race. He’s preferred to Cotai Again and Boy George while Island Warrior is a half-brother to the useful Squats and makes most appeal of the newcomers.
