Verdict

This is competitive but FORGOTTEN HERO merits close attention towards the foot of the weights having gone very well on his first excursion over a mile and a quarter at Chester last time. He's still open to improvement after a light career to date and will prove a tough nut to crack if retaining his speed at the business end over this longer trip. Ryan Moore is a good booking for Nabucco and the Gosden charge is another lightly-raced four-year-old who is performing consistently well while harbouring room for further progress. He looks on a good mark too and cannot be discounted. Awake My Soul continues to improve but now faces his toughest test to date while Resurge is at his very best around Epsom and Viewpoint could well be in need of the run.
