Verdict

William Buick is principally here to ride POMODORO for retainer John Gosden and the Pivotal gelding can get off the mark at the second time of asking. He started slowly on his debut at Kempton and was still well behind turning for home but ran on strongly under tender handling and will be more the finished article here. Vermont was second on his debut at Sandown in June but only fourth when favourite at Newmarket subsequently while Personable has his first race since finishing second at Nottingham last October, though fitness is rarely an issue for a Charlie Appleby runner. Just One Kiss has shown some promise and looks the pick of the remainder as she may not have stayed 1m4f at Windsor last time.
