Verdict

A hard race to call with not much separating the field on today's terms. The Hannon yard have a good record in this so Expert is worth considering and Sir Robert Cheval represents last year's winning trainer. Alutiq was highly tried last term and won a conditions race here on his return while American Hope chased home the 97-rated Ben Hall over 6f at the track last time. Ryan Moore partnered today's mount Brazos to victory at Goodwood last season and Pool House and Bow Creek are winning handicappers to note. ERTIJAAL was put away after picking up a maiden race at Yarmouth in June in impressive style. Entries in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket and the Curragh suggest he's held in high regard and Willie Haggas' charge gets the vote on his return.
