Race Verdict

King Of Castile has managed three wins and a second in his four runs for Jim Best and there is no reason why he should not run his race once more but preference is for AMERICAN CRICKET. He also comes into this in fine form and meets Jim Best's representative on 5lb better terms than he would in a handicap. Swansbrook comes out best on these terms and he has major claims if putting his bet foot forward.

Selection: American Cricket        Danger: King Of Castile        Alternative: Swansbrook
