Verdict

Gabrial's Kaka, only beaten a neck at Thirsk after winning at Pontefract, looks the pick of Richard Fahey's trio in this. Zain Eagle is unbeaten this year and on a hat-trick after scoring at Ripon and Doncaster while Tajheez won readily at Kempton, despite pulling hard, and should be suited by this sharp track. King Of The Danes won at Ascot and Goodwood in May but hasn't raced since and was no match for Romantic Settings at Musselburgh earlier on more favourable terms. POWDER HOUND can be forgiven his run on heavy ground at Sandown 10 days ago. He'll strip fitter here and his run behind Disclaimer at Kempton in the spring suggests he's been let in lightly here.
