The Sportsman's Verdict
ISLAND HEIGHTS found class 2 company at Cartmel too hot to handle last time and a short break is likely to have done the nine-year-old good. The return to a more conventional track and this drop in class should also suit and he can account for David John, who was a 40/1 second at Kelso recently and looks sure to be given a prominent ride. Born For War appeared in need of the outing at Hexham and has since switched yards.
