Verdict

Eur Gone West has won handicaps at Exeter and Taunton recently but a further step forward would be required to complete the hat-trick. Coolanly has possibly been a little disappointing since winning a Grade 2 at Cheltenham in the autumn but he has been keeping good company. Captain Tommy is on an upward curve but Kingofthecotswolds looks a chaser in the making and Get Out The Gate has a bit to find on official ratings. GO ANOTHER ONE won a Grade 3 over 2m4f at Thurles in February and stays this longer trip. He won his maiden here last summer so the track also suits and he looks the one to beat.
