Verdict

Twin Soul has too much to find on today's terms, while Buthelezi and Eternal Heart don't arrive in the best of form. Solar Sky isn't easily dismissed as he has more scope than today's rivals, but this looks between Barbican and HIGHLAND CASTLE. The former bids for a hat-trick but was all out to hold on over 1m4f at this track last time and the latter makes more appeal. David Elsworth's charge is not the most straightforward but Jamie Spencer has steered him to victory on two occasions this season, including a conditions race at Salisbury at the start of the month where he ran out a cosy winner. There should be more in the tank and he gets the vote.
