Verdict

Complexity had the highest rating off these on the level but this year's efforts, including his hurdling debut at Newton Abbot, have left much to be desired. RAVEN'S TOWER hasn't raced since April but stayed 1m4f on the Polytrack and had much stronger form than Orla's Rainbow, whose only glimpse of ability came in a seller. He can get rookie trainer Ben Pauling off to a flyer. Fiachra was very green at Fontwell on debut and quickly pulled up - big improvement is needed here.
