Verdict

BALLYCOOL is Bangor proven, and whilst this trip is clearly short of his best, he commands respect from the same mark as he finished 1L second to Deadly Move over 2m4f+ here in early September. His connections have opted to send him on the long journey south from Perthshire, and the presence of a couple of front runners (including The Yank) should serve to strengthen his hand. His most obvious danger is the recent Southwell winner Deise Vu. That effort has been franked by the runner up Saffron Prince winning at Plumpton since, but this race is over almost an extra two furlongs, and he might be found wanting just enough late on.
  1. Ballycool
