Verdict

Potentiale could only summon the one pace when fourth at Goodwood on Sunday and is worth taking on again here. Highlife Dancer already has four wins to his name this year, however, while Miracle Play wasn't beaten far at Chepstow last time after winning at Wolverhampton. But it would be no surprise if Ullswater proved the pick of the three-year-olds as he looked in need of the run at Pontefract earlier this month and had some fair form as a juvenile. Ermyntrude and Penchesco can't be ruled out but we'll give another chance to EFFIGY, who won for Amy Scott at Leicester in May and was only beaten a length off a higher mark over C&D last month - this looks a weaker contest.
