Verdict

Luca Cumani won this with the talented-but-temperamental Naqshabban last year and Kiwayu doesn't look the most straightforward either as he ran off the track at Windsor last week. KAAFEL looks the safer option after a promising second on his debut at Newbury last month and he gets the nod. Verse Of Love has had plenty of chances and Light Burst has looked ordinary so far, but better is expected from Fourth Of June and Aim Higher on only their second starts. Flaxen Flare and Dakota Canyon are related to winners and are newcomers to note.
