Verdict

Hayaku and C&D second Odin could both play a part here and Frankie rides the lightly-raced The Tiger for Ed Dunlop but it's probably best to concentrate on the three-year-olds. EXNING HALT looked to have made a decisive move when quickening to the front at Ripon last time but was overhauled by Narcissist inside the final furlong and had to settle for second. Though 4lb higher here, a first win can't be that far away and he gets the vote ahead of Yarmouth fourth Incendiary. Junior Diary represents last year's winning stable and didn't fare badly when fifth at Bath after getting off the mark at Wolverhampton and Villa Royale won over 1m4f at Leicester earlier this month, though has proved a little erratic this year.
