Verdict

HIDDEN GLORY can land this prize although Kensei and Raktiman are likely to give him plenty to think about. There was plenty of support at Sandown for him and that race, in which he finished third, looks to be chock full of future winners. Kensei won a Sandown maiden with something to spare and has shown improved form to a switch to fast ground. Raktiman looked the sort to improve for being sent handicapping and the cheekpieces might just settle him down a little as he has tended to run a little too freely in the opening stages. Hierarch is noted in the market for any signs of confidence. Solicitor ran lamentably at Kempton when a well supported favourite and has not shown a great deal on the turf thus far. Hidden Glory faces weaker opposition this evening and he can take the opportunity to gain some due compensation.
