Verdict

GOA LIL finished a couple of places behind the Paul Nicholls-trained Thyme White at Kempton over the festive period, but the suspicion is that this Samum gelding has merely taken time to acclimatise to his new surroundings (and the task in hand over hurdles). Under a more positive ride at Kempton three weeks ago he took a marked step forward when fending off the combined challenge of Lord Lamington and Fraser Island. This sharp track should play to the strengths of his run-style and he's fancied to continue on a positive trajectory. Of the remainder, Group Stage is most respected.
