Verdict

If Flipping can hold his form then he should go very close as a 6lb rise for his Windsor win still leaves him on a 6lb lower mark than at his peak last year but there's no guarantee of that given his profile. The consistent Sweet Secret is sure to be popular with a visor replacing blinkers but a more appealing proposition is BLUE MOON. Kevin Ryan's charge narrowly failed to get up over seven furlongs on her penultimate start and appreciated the step back up in trip on Monday; cut in the ground has no problem and she may be able to follow up. It was surprising to see Jaldarshaan sprinting last time following a good run over a mile and she should fare better back over that trip now handicapping whilst Pittodrie Star has form with cut in the ground and could go close if returning to form.
