The Sportsman's Verdict
DARK SHOT shaped encouragingly when second on his reappearance at Epsom and, although the assessor has since raised him 4lb, he's still rated 2lb lower than when finishing a neck second in this contest last year. Abel Handy returned to winning ways at Musselburgh and remains well treated on his classy juvenile form, while the improving Cowboy Soldier and consistent course-and-distance winner Copper Knight are others to note.
