Verdict

CARAVAN ROLLS ON looked useful last season and though he hasn't justified market confidence this term, he should be capable of defying topweight. Peter Chapple-Hyam's five-year-old ran respectably in the Duke Of Edinburgh Handicap and has no issues with the step back up to 1m6f. Swinging Hawk delivered an upset at Chester having dropped dramatically in the weights ahead of that win. A 5lb rise might not be enough prevent a follow-up. Polytrack performer, Noble Silk showed that he is more than capable on turf when going close at Goodwood. Sadler's Risk makes a return to Mark Johnston having had a spell as a hurdler, while former John Gosden inmate, Investissement would be more than capable of taking a hand in this if Willie Twiston-Davies can get him settled early. Suegioo is stepped up in trip having stayed on stoutly over shorter.
