Verdict

Spring Tonic has the best form in the book with a close-up second at Kempton last month. The downside is that he's more exposed than the likes of Jolaine and Erodium, with both of the latter pair expected to improve for today's longer trip. Tom Queally's booking for Rubbamaa takes the eye and Be Excellent is related to three winners but a speculative vote goes to fellow newcomer YEAGER. Jeremy Noseda has been relatively quiet on the all-weather this year but maintained an excellent strike rate at this track with his three-year-olds winning four times from seven outings. The Medaglia d'Oro colt may well be good enough on his debut with William Buick doing the steering.
