Verdict

DESERT PHILOSOPHER didn't go unbacked for his racecourse debut at Warwick a fortnight ago. He finished a creditable third on that occasion and can open his account here with improvement likely. Byronic Hero was beaten by the narrowest of margins over C&D in July though he's ran nowhere near that form in better company since, while the Irish raider Grey Danube showed a bit more at Dundalk last time and he can figure. Stepharlie improved for an outing on the Polytrack last time, but Koalition's form has taken a dip.
