Verdict

YOUNG WOLF was outpaced in the closing stages the last twice and this return to a longer trip step-up may well generate a jolt of improvement. He has already beaten Hepijeu when the pair clashed in handicap company and can do so again despite being worse off this time around as he's the one open to greatest progression. Win My Wings is up half a mile in trip but does look pretty harshly handicapped on achievements to date. Sporting Boy is more exposed but running well at present and has no stamina concerns. He's a solid each-way play, whilst it's interesting to see connections persisting over hurdles with decent chaser Doing Fine.
