Verdict

A competitive little heat in which ELUSIVITY can return to winning brackets after posting a determined effort to make all at Newmarket last time when caught late on. He's back to seven furlongs here and is clearly on the upgrade after a quiet if gradually progressive juvenile campaign. Course and distance winner Konstantin failed to follow up his success here when beaten at Windsor but was hit hard by the assessor for that victory and doesn't appeal as being particularly well treated now. Menadati's defeat on his final juvenile outing looks rather better than it did at the time and this previously progressive gelding can get involved if ready after a lengthy absence. He rates the main danger to the selection.
