Verdict

Kyleakin Lass just got the better of Cheveton in soft going at Ffos Las and the latter, who won this in 2010, has since finished runner-up at Ayr in heavy ground. Steps is another who should handle the prevailing going though last month's Epsom winner Long Awaited may struggle. Face The Problem has been in fine form but on faster surfaces while Sholaan is 14lb higher than when scoring over 6f at York last month. Judge 'N Jury also won at York in June but has struggled off higher marks since and the tentative vote goes the way of ELUSIVITY. It was testing ground when he won a conditions race at Newmarket earlier this season but he's raced in Pattern company since then and Charlie Bishop's claim should give him an edge back at this level.
