WUNDER STRIKE can land the finale at the main expense of Fernando Torres and Dr Wintringham. Wunder Strike has won his last two races in good style and his overall strike-rate on the polytrack reads well. He scored with something in hand last time and he is clearly on a roll at present. Fernando Torres has twice run well here and he had absolutely no luck last time when he found himself short of room before he eventually finished third behind French Art over 1m. He has yet to convince over this trip but he is certainly respected. Dr Wintringham ran well considering she was returning from a break here last time and this extra furlong will certainly play to her strengths. The draw is a negative for Yellow Printer, while Grand Honour has yet to convince over this trip. Wunder Strike could not be in better form and he can win again.
