Race Verdict

Good Luck Charm is worth a look in the betting on his return from a break with Tom Queally back in the saddle but Ed Dunlop's SPIRIT OF THE LAW looks more solid. He won a couple of nurseries over 1m last term and although comfortably held in fourth on his seasonal debut at Wolverhampton recently, he was far from disgraced on that occasion and the run should have done him plenty of good. Handicap newcomers Cades Reef and Piers Gaveston need to improve, but that's clearly not out of the question.

Selection: Spirit Of The Law        Danger: Good Luck Charm        Alternative: Cades Reef
