Verdict

HOT'N NOTTY stepped up on his pleasing debut performance when runner-up over track and trip and, with further improvement on the cards, he could make it third time lucky. Wyoming Chief is closely matched with the selection based on two recent clashes so he is respected, as is Oureaglehaslanded and Exclusive Code.
