Verdict

Cinematique and Burlington Bertie have shown enough to suggest they will win races but this looks between MIDNIGHT APPEAL and Kaysersberg. The former just gets the nod on the back of his narrow defeat by Dunlough Bay at Ludlow where he was headed in the dying strides of that 3m event. Kayserberg didn't run very well at Kempton last month but his earlier winning form there entitles him to the greatest respect.
