Verdict

A tricky finale and VENTURA SANDS is no more than a token selection, though should confirm Haydock running in July with Dr Red Eye on better terms. Linda Perratt often finds a winner at her local track so Retreat Content is one for the short-list as he won over a longer trip here in June. Last Destination won at Beverley and Musselburgh before failing in better company on the Polytrack, while Scottish Lake and Henry's Gift have been edging closer to that elusive first victory but William Haigh has yet to show much on turf and Qubuh still looks too high in the weights.
