The Sportsman's Verdict
ACHILL ROAD BOY is rarely all that far away and again collected minor money when runner-up at Catterick. He remains just about well treated compared to his hurdles figure, and the application of blinkers can prompt the improvement necessary for him to get his head back in front. Golden Investment also has that particular headgear on for the first time so must be feared, with Wood Pigeon another firmly in the reckoning if he takes his chance after finishing fourth at Huntingdon on Friday.
