Verdict

Boom Or Bust is proving hard to win with and has now scored just the once since 2011. He has the beating of Custom Cut and Emell but finished behind Fencing at Ascot in May. The latter floundered in a couple of subsequent starts after that Listed success and needs to prove more robust this season. GUEST OF HONOUR is also a Listed winner but ran even better when third in the Group 2 Summer Mile at Goodwood in July. Marco Botti's charge has every chance at this level and gets the nod ahead of Graphic. The latter did nothing but improve in handicaps last year and is not easily overlooked as he returns to action but the remainder have a bit to find on today's terms, although a fillies' allowance helps the cause of Butterfly McQueen.
