Verdict

Some useful in-form sorts clash with THE ART OF RACING taken to oblige for the Olly Stevens yard which is enjoying a solid season. The Acclamation gelding was arguably unfortunate at Windsor last time when a close second to March and holds Dusty Storm on that running. He's been given a nice break since and all his best form has been delivered at this minimum trip on quick ground so conditions should suit. Tumblewind is having a fine season but this rates a tougher task and Dream Cast appeals as the prime threat. Still a potential improver, the Simcock charge got going all too late at Windsor when just failing to rein in Tychaios and may be a better proposition on this more conventional track. Smart Daisy K and Holley Shiftwell cannot be discounted either in a fascinating opener.
