Verdict

Three of these were last-time winners but the hat-trick seeking Halfsin has been rested since edging home at Doncaster in April and is 5lb higher here. Kirthill needs to improve significantly on his defeat of Roy My Boy in a maiden over 1m here last month to figure so the vote goes to TAHAAMAH. Well backed on his reappearance at Chester, Saeed Bin Suroor's colt didn't let supporters down and found a fine turn of foot to win a shade cosily after meeting trouble in-running. He looks capable of going on to better things. Trojan Nights was just beaten in a better race at Epsom on Derby Day and is another to consider but Stentorian has disappointed this year.
