The Sportsman's Verdict
NORSE LIGHT excels around a flat track and despite now rising 4lb, his performance at Market Rasen earlier this month when beaten only a neck suggests there is more to come. The Groovy Hoovy is an interesting recruit to the handicap ranks following wind surgery, while Scented Lily was just about to start her best work when falling at the final flight last time, and she can figure with a clear round.
