Verdict

BALLYMILLSY was unlucky to bump into a thriving rival when attempting to follow up at Warwick and he sets the clear standard on these terms back in a novice. Bobhopeornohope was beaten by more than a rise in class at Doncaster but has been given plenty of time to recover, with Ballingers Corner also of interest.
