Verdict

Stormy Paradise appeared to find 7f at Warwick too far last time having won over 6f at Goodwood earlier while Far Gaze has been competing in better company since scoring at Lingfield back in April. Rizal Park and Banaadeer are both open to improvement having picked up maiden races on their latest outings and it would be no surprise to see either figure in the finish though they have MR MATTHEWS to beat. The latter was beaten only a length in a better nursery than this at York last time and the runner-up Lanark has since won. That looks good enough form to go close and Elaine Burke's charge gets the vote.
