Verdict

Plaisterer was right back to form at Epsom, when Alan Munro did not even resort to the whip, though she did have the run of things and a 4lb rise means we will take her on with NORTHSIDE PRINCE. Alan Swinbank's charge has been in superb form in completing a hat-trick, two of the wins coming over course and distance. He steps up in grade here as a result of a 6lb rise, but with Marjury Daw having franked the form of his last success he might just be capable of another one. Caldercruix is finding it tough off this current mark, borne out of a good spring, while Jutland is also finding it harder to win since the assessor put him up above 90. European Dream is well handicapped on his form of 2007 and Bencoolen should get competitive on recent evidence but he may find it tough to live with the progressive Northside Prince.
