Verdict

Justice Day boasts the highest rating after finishing third to Astaire in the Group 1 Middle Park in October but he was engaged to run at York yesterday and it's a matter of conjecture whether he turns up here. The consistent Musical Comedy is at his best with plenty of cut and he'll find today's ground fast enough. Richard Hughes still prefers the latter to stablemate Langavat, however, while Mushir is penalised for last year's Listed win at York. NAADIRR faded in the closing stages of a valuable sales race at Newmarket on his return but showed enough to suggest there was much more to come. Marco Botti's colt gets the vote as Rufford has a bit find with Musical Comedy on latest running and the remainder have even more to do on these terms.
