Verdict

Gramm is the eye-catcher here as he's thrown in on old form and was tried over a massively inadequate five furlongs on his return, but backing him still represents a big risk and we'll side with the slightly more convincing profile of CLASSIC CONTOURS. John Quinn's runner shaped well enough over hurdles last time to suggest he's in good heart and has dropped to a mark of 60, one he's well capable of defying when things drop right. Straversjoy is better on artificial surfaces and has a little to prove on turf, Miereveld has had less chances than most and is in the right hands, while Yossi really should be winning races off this mark if anywhere close to his old self.
