Verdict

Rhombus has won two of his last three despite still looking green. This is a slight step up in grade but it will be a surprise if he's not involved, a remark that is also attributed to Evangelist, who just held on at Windsor after being dashed into the lead three furlongs out. Eric The Grey got no sort of run at Hamilton last time but is still a maiden and has gone up in the weights without winning. TOPAMICHI did well on soft ground in the spring and connections have been waiting for the going to ease so he's given the nod in a tight little handicap.
