Verdict

Focail Maith has won five times on the Flat and is back in the UK after a couple of runs in Ireland. He can't be ignored but Simply A Legend pulled too hard at Ludlow last time and has a bit to prove now. Chalk It Down and Truckers Darling also need to find improvement but Go West Young Man showed promise at Kempton in April and should develop as he gains experience. John Ferguson gets some classy recruits from the Flat and Namibian is no exception. He won the Queen's Vase and the Gordon Stakes as a three-year-old but may just need this and we prefer another newcomer in NORDIC QUEST. He'll have had plenty of schooling and neither the trip nor ground will be a problem.
