At the prices, it is KERRY’S BOY who makes most appeal ahead of this contest. The unexposed five-year-old, who has the in-form Daryl Jacob doing the steering, comes here after taking a step in right direction last time out, finishing behind a rival that is better than anything he’ll face in this contest. A repeat performance may be enough for him to get seriously involved, though any improvement would surely see him go very close indeed. Captain Simon will be expected to improve for the step up in trip, though he is far too short in the betting considering he’s shown nothing over timber as of yet. Scented Lily could be there or thereabouts with a repeat of her course and distance win last time out, though she is famously inconsistent.
