In depth

Verdict

LORD ACCORD showed a good attitude to land a competitive novices' limited handicap at Uttoxeter on chasing bow and may repeat the dose off a reasonable 3lb higher mark. He's only had eight runs under Rules and is progressing well. Castle Robin had a fine time last term and progressed through the ranks to be placed in Grade 2 company on his final start. Not seen since January, he's a danger to all if ready to go - and if proving effective over fences. Moroder is well treated over a trip he stays well, whilst connections will be hoping wind surgery has had a positive effect on Bobhopeornohope as he'd previously looked quite an interesting prospect.
