Verdict

HOT SPARK has won over this course and distance as recently as last month and Brannagh looks good on the pick of his form whilst Timeless Stride represents the one of the classiest yards. There is more to come from Hot Spark who beat Unshakeable Will when last seen at this track. If showing that sort of performance again here there is every chance he can improve on a decent runner-up place at Haydock last time out. Brannagh may have preference for a furlong further given pedigree and recent performances. Timeless Stride seems to like the faster ground and coming from a yard with such a fantastic record it is hard to rule him out of calculations. Sabatini had some really good runs on the all-weather last year but disappointed on seasonal reappearance at Newmarket and is overlooked today and Murura hasn't been as good on turf as the artificial. We prefer to look at the form of Hot Spark and think he can win this contest.
