Verdict

Edward Lynam looks to hold the key here with WORD FOR WORD and Sparring Partner. The pair met over the C&D in May when the latter came out on top but Johnny Murtagh returns to action on board the former and, as his mount is a couple of pounds better off and running well, the partnership can prevail this time. Bramante hasn't had much experience but has been in fine form of late, especially when runner-up to Lift The Gloom a fortnight ago. However, that was over a mile and he finished last on his only start around this trip. Solo Whisper ran his best-ever race behind Imprudent Miss over slightly further three weeks ago and can race from the same mark making him a live threat if able to repeat.
