Verdict

NUBE NEGRA looks the pick of a pair from the Dan Skelton yard, and he was arguably unlucky not to win when brought down at Taunton. Sunshade has had wind surgery since disappointing at this meeting last year, and could well bounce back, with Maquisard appealing as best of the rest having had his own ill-fortune last time.
