Verdict

The weight-for-age concession should swing things ASHDAN's way and the three-year-old gets the vote to take care of his older rivals. He made a promising reappearance when second in Listed company over a mile at Newmarket recently and breeding suggests there should be plenty more to come over middle-distances. However, he still has last year's winner Cameron Highland to beat and, though the latter has been a shade below his best so far this season, he's rated much higher than Cayuga and Freddy Q with the latter pair likely to be destined to fight it out for the minor place money.
