Verdict

Royal Challis has a big chance if adapting to the artificial surface as he's been in good form on Turf this year. But PEARL BRIDGE has already shown he handles the Polytrack by finishing second here in April and Ralph Beckett's lightly-raced gelding got off the mark in what looked a decent York maiden subsequently. Silca's Dream appears to have gone off the boil but did finish ahead of Royal Acquisition at Ripon in the spring and the others may need this.
