Verdict

DISPOL GRAND, Noodles Blue Boy and Musical Bridge are the trio for the shortlist here and the vote is given to Dispol Grand. The selection ticks plenty of boxes here as he has trip and ground to suit, he is in good form and he also has a good draw. He beat Noodles Blue Boy by a neck at Newcastle last time and on these terms there should be little between the pair again, although Noodles Blue Boy is not as well drawn today. Musical Bridge will be suited by this drop in trip as he does not seem to get home over 6f and for that reason his latest below-par effort can be forgiven. Baby Queen would have claims on the pick of her form but she ran a shocker at Newmarket last time, while Lady Vivien is another whose form is a bit hit and miss. Dispol Grand makes most appeal and he gets the vote.
