Verdict

Plus Ultra looks to be a likely contender but appeal is slightly diminished as he runs near the top of the weights. Ella Grace enjoyed the track here last year but didn't ever look in the game at Ayr on her seasonal reappearance. An improved run can be expected but there are others who make more appeal. Star Addition is still a maiden after seventeen runs and he looks harshly weighted given he lost by eleven lengths last time out. BEFORE THE WAR is our very tentative selection after running on inside the final furlong at Newmarket. The Luca Cumani trained colt was bought for 55,000 guineas last year and can start to repay that price tag by taking this race.
