Verdict

There is a very solid look to the form of SOVEREIGN REMEDY, who gets the vote ahead of Militarist here, while Snow Bay and Prince Of Johanne are respected lower in the weights. Representing Godolphin, the selection won a Nottingham maiden in May before being found out over 10f at York. The return to a mile brought a better effort last time, however, when he ran third behind Brief Encounter, who is a good yardstick in context. Good ground suits and we will give him the nod. Militarist won on debut over at the Rowley course but failed to repeat the dose when favourite back there last time. The yard is now going well again though, so we may see more from the War Chant colt this time. Last-time winner Snow Bay has gone up 5lbs and the step from Catterick to headquarters is not an obvious route to further riches. However, Bryan Smart has little option but to pitch him in here and see what occurs, and he will certainly have his trip and ground. Prince Of Johanne has been allotted what looks a fair mark of 76 for this handicap debut but with Jeremy Noseda continuing to provide a good strike rate for punters he will be of interest if there is market warmth. Resort has quickly slipped in the weights after the handicapper appeared to have overestimated his abilities and he should now be able to make his presence felt, but preference is for Sovereign Remedy.
