In depth

Verdict

This is a very competitive affair and three that catch the eye are Danum, Air Of Esteem and Donegal Shore, with Air Of Esteem just given the vote. Ian Emmerson's entire finished an excellent second behind prolific winner Tee Jay Kassidy last time, with Donegal Shore back in third just a head away. It should be close between the pair again but the selection was returning from a break and may have needed the run, so should confirm the form. Danum has to give weight away all round, but put in a very good performance last time out when third behind Never Forget Bowie at Wolverhampton, a repeat of that effort should see him involved in the finish today. Coolfore Jade has shown enough recently to warrant respect and may do best of the others, but Air Of Esteem appears to have the best overall form and gets the verdict
