The Sportsman's Verdict
TOOR GENERAL was in fine form last month, returning from a summer break to score at Roscommon before dead-heating for major honours at Fairyhouse last time. Tony Martin's seven-year-old has the chance to make his mark again here following a 6lb rise and it would be no surprise to see him thrive once more while conditions suit. Benny In Milan made a successful raid on Southwell latest and has to be respected despite dropping back from that extended 2m4f trip, while Bay Hill appears a must for the shortlist on the back his recent outings. Liam Gilligan removing 7lb in the saddle makes him effectively just 2lb higher than when winning at Listowel in September.
