Verdict

Moderate fayre on offer here and first-time cheek pieces might just help DRAGON DE LA TOUR enough to get his nose in front now tried again over this far. Scarlet Minstrel tries this far for the first time and is likely to be thereabouts, while Our Delboy is another from an in-form yard and can take home some money.
  1. Dragon De La Tour
  2. Scarlet Minstrel
