Verdict

Grand Denial has already won at Doncaster and Windsor this year and is probably still on a decent mark. Gold Beau is another in-form three-year-old and on a hat-trick after victories at Hamilton and Carlisle. Wooden King may be back in the handicapper's grip, however, while Italian Tom is hard to predict. Shore Step got taken off his feet over 5f at Goodwood last time and is capable of better but we like the look of MILIKA. Back on fast ground for the first time in well over a year at Windsor last month, Rae Guest's filly looked much happier and will be aided here by Oisin Murphy's 5lb claim.
