Verdict

Roy Bowring's runners are usually worth a second look here and Master Of Song had stablemate Solarmaite behind when second over a longer trip on the Fibresand last month. He's won here in the past but is hard to catch right. Prince Of Burma arrives off the back of a win on the Polytrack. He's 7lb higher here but is still well treated on his old form and Sonnetation can't be left out of calculations having also scored an artificial surface on his latest start. BARBARY showed little on Turf in his first season but has definitely improved on the Polytrack this year. He didn't appear to stay 1m2f last time and could be a bit of value in this against more exposed rivals.
