Verdict

Talwar, Justonefortheroad and Kyllachy Star are all fairly treated on their best form but woefully out of sorts. Richard Fahey trains the last two named and also has Extraterrestrial and Viva Ronaldo in the line-up, though both look held on the form book. Chosen Character had Extraterrestrial more than five lengths behind when winning on heavy ground over C&D last month and has had a terrific season. He will make a bold bid to complete his hat-trick while Crown Counsel was only beaten half-a-length over 1m2f at York last week and should be thereabouts again. JAKE'S DESTINY is creeping up the weights but, after a string of good runs in fair company, finally got off the mark on Turf at Ascot two weeks ago. A follow-up here is on the cards though Tiger Reigns came back to form behind Chosen Character here last time and will be pressing for a place again. Toto Skyllachy may be the pick of the remainder ahead of Muffin McLeay and Benzanno.
