Verdict

TELMEYD can continue his upward curve by completing the hat-trick under Steffi Hofer. He's been raised 9lb since scoring at Ripon but has the scope to defy the extra. Newmarket winner Highland Acclaim looks the danger as he's a consistent type and the step up in trip might catch out the filly Umneyati. Deeds Not Words beat Remember and Golden Steps at Newmarket last month but the latter has reversed the form at HQ subsequently. Rufford has his sights lowered and looks the pick of the remainder.
