Verdict

EXCEL BOLT won his first two starts at Musselburgh before taking his chance in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot last June. He finished an excellent third on that occasion and, if he's improved in the meantime, Bryan Smart's colt will take all the beating here. Shoshoni Wind finished a respectable fifth in a Group 3 fillies' race at Ayr in September and could prove the chief danger as Cocktail Charlie finished just behind the selection at Musselburgh last year and hasn't progressed as expected in a couple of starts since. Crimson Knot looks up against it in this company on her return.
