Verdict

Top Notch Tonto is top rated on official figures having won a decent handicap at Ayr on his first start over a mile. He looks sure to make another bold bid but OASIS CANNES is just preferred. His latest four length defeat at the hands of Alterite in a Listed race in France now looks better form as the latter subsequently went very close in the Group 1 Marcel Boussac on Arc day. Sir Mark Prescott's colt gets the vote with Pearl Reward looking a danger after sluicing home by eight lengths in a C&D maiden last month. Willie The Whipper was another impressive maiden winner albeit over 6f and he makes more appeal than Georgian Bay of the remainder.
