Verdict

Hidden Link has won twice on the Polytrack and is dropped in grade for this. He looks the best of the three-year-olds ahead of Grey Gazelle, who has gone backwards since finishing third on debut at Newbury, and Harbour Captain. The latter has run well in two previous starts here but may struggle to last home over the longer trip. FOR SHIA AND LULA has a penalty to carry and a bit to find at the weights but at least arrives in top form after a second at Ffos Las and could get back to winning ways. Newton Lodge made no impression dropped into a seller at Wolverhampton and is best watched again here.
