Verdict

BALLYHOME improved and landed a gamble at Wetherby starting out for Fergal O'Brien, and he appeals as the type to stay ahead of the handicapper for a while. There are plenty of dangers, however, with The Dellercheckout a likely improver for wind surgery, and Offshore Oscar and Sliding Doors two of several arriving on the back of very promising efforts.
