Verdict

The top four in the weights have all been performing consistently well this term but INCITING INCIDENT could be the one if able to repeat his rapid stalls exit last time when making all at Nottingham. Ryan Moore is booked and such tactics are well suited to this venue. Castorienta is a consistent filly but her two wins to date have come on the all-weather and soft ground, unlike Miss Brazil, who delivered the goods on a good to firm terrain at Yarmouth last month. Both seems likely to run their race once more, likewise The Dandy Yank, another who handles quick ground and who confirmed current wellbeing with a solid effort just four days ago on the new surface at Wolverhampton.
