Verdict

Captain Cullen returned to winning ways over a mile at this track last month and is upped 5lb. He has the beating of Harpist on earlier form and Iron Major has a couple of lengths to make up on latest running. Jockey bookings suggest the latter is favoured of Ed Lynam's runners but a chance is taken on stablemate DOC HOLLIDAY as he went close over track and trip last month and can add to his earlier course wins off only a slightly higher mark. Ask Dad and Blue Bullet may figure back up in trip but this is tougher than the race Cool Athlete won here in January.
