Verdict

This looks easier than the task OFF PISTE faced at Doncaster recently when third behind the useful Boitron - he should go close in this company. Whiskey And Water is going the right way judged on his latest effort at Newcastle but Immokalee has shown no progress since placed at Beverley on her debut. The remainder have shown little to recommend them so far and the newcomers look nothing out of the ordinary on breeding.
