Verdict

CAPTAIN GEORGE is just 3llb higher in the weights than when he won this last year and has fewer questions to answer than the majority of his rivals. The gelding gets a tentative nomination ahead of Hope Is High and Penny Poet , who make the most appeal from the very modest bunch drawn together as opposition.
  1. Captain George
  2. Hope Is High
  3. Penny Poet
