Race Verdict

BOOKS REVIEW performed to a moderate level over hurdles in 2010 but a subsequent spell between the flags has sparked improvement and he posted a career-best performance when second in a hunters' chase over 3m2f at Cheltenham last month. That effort confirmed his liking for slow ground and a bold bid looks assured if reproducing the form. Lucette Annie and Kirkleigh are both debuting under Rules but warrant respect due to their strike-rate in the point-to-point scene.
