Verdict

Overstep is the only one of these who arrives on the back of a win but that was only a maiden at Hamilton. The remaining trio were all beaten in Group races last time with Vigor finding the competition too hot in the Superlative Stakes over 7f here and Astaire running well despite finishing sixth in the July Stakes over track and trip. The latter has every chance but COULSTY is just preferred as he beat three subsequent winners at Leicester before a below par run in the Norfolk and today's extra furlong will suit.
