Verdict

Sirop De Menthe put a modest UK debut behind him to win by 10 lengths at Stratford but he may find this more difficult under a penalty and has a bit to find to overturn Uttoxeter form with Akdam. LINDENHURST is one of a four-strong raiding party from John McConnell's yard in County Meath and he can reverse Hexham running with Akdam and land this. Diamonds A Dancing was well behind Sirop De Menthe at Stratford while Eyeline was a long-standing maiden on the Flat, though should stay the trip.
