Verdict

Both Maypole Class and Normandy Soldier boast progressive profiles despite having stamina reserves to conclusively prove at 3m. Meanwhile, a similar accusation can be levelled at the re-routed Endless Flight who absolutely hacked up on his handicap debut at Exeter (now rated 12lb higher). Paul Nicholls is responsible for the unexposed Easyrun De Vassy while St Barts makes appeal as a handicap newcomer with heavy ground winning novice form. However, for small stakes we'll chance the lightly-raced FRISSON COLLONGES who has been brought along steadily since joining the Skelton's for £100,000 in April 2019.
