Verdict

Storm Moon ran nowhere near his best on his return and drops back in trip for this. Small Fury is more reliable and finished a close-up second on her reappearance at Bath with Hot Secret a length behind in fourth. Today's drop in class should see Ask The Guru in a better light but he's hard to win with and ANGUS OG makes more appeal. The latter was only beaten a head at Ripon on his seasonal debut and can go one better with that run under his belt.
