Verdict

LOOKING ON justified favouritism at Plumpton last month and is likely to be suited by this sharp track. A winner over 1m2f on the Flat last year, he may have too much speed for Cloudy Bob, who ran well for a long way over 2m4f in a hot handicap at Haydock two weeks ago. Zarzal should make a race of it, however, as last week's third to Cockney Sparrow at Aintree was his best run so far. Urcalin hasn't been disgraced in either start over hurdles and is preferred to the four-year-old Phantom Prince of those still seeking a first win over timber.
