Race Verdict

Tim Easterby's yard began all guns blazing this time last year but while Mappin Time is respected on his seasonal reappearance, he may just need the run and ISLAND LEGEND rates the safer option. The C&D winner has done nothing but improve over this trip on the all-weather surface this year and the 85-rated son of Trans Island can defy top weight and land the hat-trick. Wooden King makes most appeal of the remainder.

Selection: Island Legend        Danger: Mappin Time        Alternative: Wooden King
