Verdict

CRYSTALLIZE is given the vote to land himself back in the winners enclosure at the expense of Napoletano and Patavium Prince. The selection landed back to back races at Wolverhampton and Warwick last month and was not discredited when finishing fourth of eleven at Warwick last time out. He runs off the same mark of 68 today and is given weight all round so if at his best he is sure to go close. Napoletano has won at this venue twice in his career so is on the verge of being a course specialist. He is not however the most prolific of winners so has to be treated with some caution. Patavium Prince caught the eye when finishing second to Golden Prospect at this venue last time out. That form reads well and if able to reproduce that same level of form he ought to go close once again. Crystallize however is the form pick and takes preference.
