Verdict

This won’t take much winning and Honourmission starts off in handicaps at a very modest level. Petrify won twice at Newton Abbot last summer and had a recent run on the Flat while Harbour Force hasn’t had much racing whereas INSPIREUS has yet to place in 10 attempts. The latter’s runs have not been without promise, however, so he can get the better of Stolberg and the others.
