Verdict

The Adrian McGuinness-trained HIGHLY APPROVED has an ideal opportunity to grab an early lead from stall three with jockey Ronan Whelan dictating from the front. The Five-year-old is a dual winner over C&D and can go well at a big price for a yard who have produced four winners and three place runners in the last three years at the start of January since 2017 from 19 starters. Last time out winner over C&D Eacharn can produce another solid effort off a 5lb higher mark along with Will Be King for the Joseph O'Brien yard who have a 43% win and place strike rate in the early part of January at this track in the last three years and C&D winner Fashaar.
  1. Highly Approved
