Verdict

Penitent is good enough if back to his best but has struggled so far this year and Irish raider Custom Cut could get involved if the ground cuts up. Gabrial gets a first time visor having finished third in the Huxley Stakes over a longer trip at Chester last time while Producer has won four times over 7f here but has yet to win anywhere over further. Sri Putra is a class act on his day and goes well fresh. He makes more appeal than Tales Of Grimm and Fantastic Moon but GREGORIAN looks the one to be on. John Gosden's colt was beaten only a length in the Group 1 St James's Palace Stakes last term and with a recent pipe-opener over 7f at Haydock under his belt, he gets the vote back over his optimum trip.
