Verdict

Royal Ruby should be stronger if settling better than he did on his hurdles debut at Fakenham, and by Yeats has plenty to offer in the stamina department. However, the penalised pair of Dell Oro and FIRST FLOW make more appeal at present. The former has to prove he can handle testing conditions, but he made a pleasing hurdles debut at Ascot last month. Therefore, preference is for the Kim Bailey trained runner, who looks every inch a future staying chaser. His hurdles debut coincided with an upturn in fortunes, and by beating a 126-rated subsequent winner (Al Shahir), he sets the clear benchmark.
  1. First Flow
