Verdict

Cool Steel doesn't look anything special but GTAAB has shown promise on more than one occasion, including when runner-up to Adrenalin Flight over a similar trip at Fontwell last month. Paul Webber's five-year-old can gain a deserved first success today though Jezza, four times a winner on the Flat, will be a big danger following a credible first run over timber behind Cleaver at Fontwell. Theredballoon was a little disappointing on his latest start at Southwell but earlier efforts entitle to respect in this company.
