Verdict

John Gosden won this with the newcomer Feel Like Dancing last year and EAGLE TOP wears the same colours. The latter is a brother to the very useful Park Hill winner The Lark and gets the nod. Catadupa is a half-sister to Cubanita, who runs earlier on the card, while Fort Berkeley is related to Ebor winner Tiger Cliff. Limousine and Le Maitre Chat are other newcomers to note given those with experience are no great shakes on the evidence of what they've shown to date. Automated wears his owners first colours ahead of Bergan and Sayed Youmzain is preferred to stablemate Norab on jockey bookings. Kisanji was well beaten on his reappearance but Sternrubin looks likely to improve this season.
