Verdict

Dubai Dynamo runs here with a 6lb penalty for a very convincing victory at Ayr on Monday and he has a massive weight to carry against some progressive rivals. It's difficult to know what to make of FLUCTUATE as he was sent to Wolverhampton to lose his maiden tag which he did with the utmost ease. The expensive colt has a much more difficult task here but looks just the type to progress into a useful performer and is handed the vote. Hefner looks a real threat after his Kempton victory and though both victories to date have come on Polytrack he ran well on soft ground at Sandown last month. The ex-Irish Silver Sycamore showed a bit of promise for David Lanigan on ground much faster than he would have liked at Windsor and is one to keep an eye on in the market.
