The Sportsman's Verdict
DOWN THE HIGHWAY has won between the flags and made a pleasing introduction to his career under Rules, hacking up over the extended 2m3f at Lingfield last month. He's having his second run for Emma Lavelle this afternoon and is an interesting prospect now pitched into Grade 2 company. Alan King has won four of the last nine renewals and so his unbeaten Alsa Mix commands the utmost respect. Grade 3-placed over fences, Paul Nicholls' French import My Way is also worth a market check, having undergone a breathing operation ahead of his UK bow.
