Verdict

A fine strike strike rate with his three-year-old representatives at this track will ensure Luca Cumani's colt, DON PADEJA, will attract support. He may well prove good enough having finished third on the Polytrack behind the progressive Slip Of The Tongue earlier this month. Better is expected from both Forget Me Not Lane and Prophesy as they drop in class while Opera Buff went within a head of scoring at Kempton a fortnight ago, although he's been raised 4lb for his trouble. Codebreaker may well improve for this longer trip and is preferred to Ivanhoe if doing so.
