At The Races Verdict

Alfred Richardson missed the break but still bolted up over track and trip last time. He's been hit with an 8lb rise as a consequence, so marginal preference for win purposes is for FIRST FLIGHT, who is back on his last winning mark and hinted his turn was fast approaching when returning to form with a solid third over C&D latest. Black Isle Boy is better known for his sprint exploits but he's 2lb below his last winning rating and there are clues from his breeding he may well stay 1m at the first attempt.

Timeform Verdict

ALFRED RICHARDSON needs another personal best having gone up 8 lb for last month's C&D victory, but he did the job in good style that day and may well be equal to this task. Though seemingly passed over by Daniel Tudhope in favour of Black Isle Boy, Grandee could be the pick of the O'Meara-trained trio, particularly if they go hard up front, while Truth Or Dare also enters calculations.
