Verdict

A quality wide open handicap where the percentage call might be the progressive TAMAATHUL. Trainer Barry Hills has an excellent record at this track and having not been beaten far at this venue in a Group Three last time out the pick should improve again with a weight for age allowance in operation. Big Audio hasn't really lived up to expectations since joining Godolphin but if back to his best would be a threat while Camerooney is highly progressive and is in the running to land a four-timer. Richard Fahey's string are still bang in form so after a near miss last time Brae Hill could go one better but Tamaathul looks slightly the better option.
