Verdict

Shirocco Passion is the only one safely ignored in a tight contest though Trinity Star is upped in class and Syros is upped in distance. Nakeeta's only win so far came in maiden company but Clear Spell has been raised only 2lb for winning at Hamilton and should go well again. Stanarley Pic finished ahead of Ryeolliean when runner-up at Ripon and can race off the same mark today but a tentative vote goes to top weight MANTOU. He drops down a couple of grades after making his handicap debut behind the unbeaten Redkirk at Ascot.
