Verdict

HIGH TROJA never looked like winning when runner-up at Yarmouth last time but Ed Dunlop's colt was noted staying on strongly in the heavy ground. This extra furlong should suit and he has little to beat on what his rivals have shown so far. Prokeel never figured in testing ground at Haydock on his debut and Spats Colombo finished last on his introduction. Train Hard did better when fifth at Nottingham and could prove the main threat if taking to the surface.
