But a slight preference goes to the former who has done extremely good in previous assignments and has also taken part in tougher and better competitions than this. Should be able to go all the way. The other dangers maybe Let Right Be Done and Jessie Allan.

Shows his excellent improvemt starting from the first win of the hat-trick which was a Class5 then second win was a Class4 and the hat-trick was in a Class3 in good/firm ground over 5f. With all those performamces Royal Brave is the one to beat here. Last time out was also at Ayr in a Class3 event over 5f finishing 3rd but the Soft surface did not suite and coming back to familiar ground and on a workable mark with an in-form P McDonald on board should definitely help its cause.
