Verdict

Classic Jewel showed renewed enthusiasm when opening his account at Uttoxeter last time out and must be given due respect in the follow up, whilst Kapricorne is worth noting on debut for new connections despite a lacklustre record. No Through Road is on now a very lowly mark if able to produce anything like his best but BRAVE HELIOS produced a decent effort last time at Stratford and, running off the same mark, might be up to going one better today.
