Verdict

There will be no shortage of opinion ahead of this handicap over the Derby trip and despite having to shoulder a significant weight, BOUGGATTI can make his class count. The four-year-old is yet to prove that he stays the trip but his recent success at Brighton suggests that he is likely to act on the track. Rodrigo De Freitas has to be considered following an easy win at Folkestone but enthusiasm for him is somewhat muted by a modest record at Epsom in the past. Comical was highly tried last year and weakened tamely at Catterick on reappearance but Reset City is without the tongue strap that he sported at Carlisle and could well be a factor off a 4lb lower mark. Amen makes his Flat debut in Britain off a mark of 67 and the market should give us an idea of what to anticipate from the former Aidan O'Brien inmate.
