Verdict

The booking of Paul Hanagan for Rattleyurjewellery takes the eye given that her yard can ready a debutante whilst Ollie Pears has his string in top form and Kieren Fallon's presence aboard Jade must also count as a positive. Fityaan has form claims but the yard aren't sending out the winners with their customary regularity which is a concern for supporters of stablemate West Leake Melody. Sovereign Street and Susiesstaying showed promise at Beverley and Redcar and could get involved if building on that but Lowawatha and DOUBLE DEALER may be the two to concentrate on. The Godolphin owned colt may benefit from being dropped in trip and is given the nominal vote ahead of Ralph Beckett's charge who may not have been suited by the soft ground at Leicester having shaped well in a Salisbury maiden that threw up winners.
