Verdict

Unwanted Gift, Summer Swing and Watchmaker all look worth taking on here while consistency isn't the strongpoint of Kinkeel, though he did finish second over C&D off this mark nine days ago. The veteran was pulled up when BOHEMIAN ROCK won over a similar trip at Towcester last month, however, and will struggle to get the better of Caroline Bailey's charge here even though the latter is now 6lb higher and was well beaten off today's mark over 2m4f at the same track subsequently. Star Galaxy looks to have plenty to do under top weight but Phoenix Des Mottes has made the frame in his last two starts, though is an infrequent winner.
