Verdict

Native Citizen rarely runs over 6f these days and the last time he did so was just over a year ago when he scored narrowly from today's rivals Lutine Bell and MAC'S POWER. The latter looks the one to be on here as he's 8lb better off and though hardly a prolific winner he's been running very well in better handicaps than this including when mid-division in the Wokingham last time. Farlow is a progressive sprinter who beat a big field on ground with plenty of give at Doncaster in May before running very well over an extra furlong on firm ground at Haydock. Shropshire has only won once but his close second to Maarek at Newmarket in May points to his chances here while Seeking Magic is a speedy performer though he's yet to prove himself on soft ground.
