Verdict

PARK ROW arrives in the middle of a real purple patch and can complete the course hat-trick. Three wins from his last four starts, the son of Where Or When is versatile in regards to trip, having won over an extended 10 furlongs two starts ago and over C&D last time. He is up 7lb in the ratings but is difficult to get away from in his present mood. Uncle Henry heads the list of dangers from Marine One.

Verdict

UNCLE HENRY matched his previous best when a close-up third behind a couple of thriving sorts at Naas 10 days ago, an effort all the more encouraging given he came from much further back than that pair. He can resume winning ways back on AW. Park Row continues to thrive on racing and he is feared, as is handicap debutant Calgath.
