The Sportsman's Verdict
SHAMILAN was disappointing when last seen at Chepstow in January but he warrants plenty of respect on the back of a 120-day absence having placed on his two starts prior at Hereford and Exeter. Fortified Bay returns from almost two years on the sidelines and, if retaining his ability, could make a solid impact, while Cool Destination's second at Warwick last month puts him in the mix.
