Verdict

Paul Midgley has few peers in the sprinting sphere and his OSTILIO, who really caught the eye when a fast-finishing fourth in the Beverley Bullet, is taken to capitalise on a very handy mark now he reverts to 6f. Great Ambassador arrives on a hat-trick and is feared most under a 5 lb penalty, with Stewards' Cup hero Commanche Falls and resurgent Thirsk scorer Just Frank also firmly in the picture.

  1. OSTILIO
  2. GREAT AMBASSADOR
  3. COMMANCHE FALLS
