Intersky Charm, Sunnyside Tom and Russian George catch the eye in this open contest, with RUSSIAN GEORGE getting the vote to come out on top. Sunnyside Tom won over this course and distance two outings ago in a race which has worked out well, before putting in a solid effort in defeat off a higher mark last time. He is well drawn here and on a track he likes can return to form. Intersky Charm was getting off the mark on Turf when scoring over the course and distance last week That was a fine effort in a big field and although racing off a 6lb higher mark here, now that he has found his form he is respected. Russian George looks well treated here, after a fine effort in defeat at Newmarket on his last start, finishing a close second to Suruor, who ran well at the Royal meeting. The fourth, Secret Society was just touched off in the Britannia after slamming his rivals at Thirsk, and the form looks very good. Only 1lb higher, Russian George gets a confident vote.
