Verdict

BENONI was beaten a neck by Glanely at Wolverhampton two weeks ago but is 2lb better off here. The third has franked the form since and Henry Candy's charge is one for the short-list as he has the beating of Epsom scorer Prince Regal on earlier Sandown running. Naaz was raised 5lb for winning at Sandown last week but the soft ground clearly won't be a problem, though he drops down another furlong here. Evident did well to win at Doncaster in June as he missed the break. Unexposed, he could figure if fully wound-up while Front Page News is a consistent filly and won't be far away if handling the easier surface. Combustible on soft ground at Ffos Las on his Turf debut and looks the pick of the remainder.
