Verdict

Freeport had been in fine form before finding 1m1f at Yarmouth just too far so he should bounce back here but Super Cookie may find the trip just on the short side as he scored over that Yarmouth trip last time. Bold Prediction has never won on Turf but went very close at Newcastle and Shearian produced his best run for some time over the track and trip last week. HENRY THE AVIATOR attempted to make all at Newmarket a week ago and didn't go down without a fight. He was held up when scoring at Haydock last month and similar tactics can see him return to winning ways. Neither Ready nor Correggio can be discounted in a tight little handicap.
