Verdict

Ashdown Lad beat Presburg, who runs in the first division, in a claimer at Sandown but this looks a bit more competitive. Hidden Justice also looks worth opposing in first-time blinkers while Freddy Q has lost his way. The Quarterjack may struggle to complete the hat-trick after being raised 7lb for narrowly winning an amateurs' race at Newbury but Ghost Protocol shouldn't be far away and Positively came good at Kempton 11 days ago, though her pedigree suggests she may struggle to stay this far. AEGAEUS should, however, and Frankie's presence in the saddle suggests he'll carry a bit of confidence despite a break. His run behind Trade Commissioner at Sandown in May worked out well and he has plenty of scope. Goodwood Atlantic is preferred to Dandy of the others.
