Verdict

A Derby in name only but a Derby all the same and a good chance for MERCHANT OF MEDICI to land a deserved success after a trio of commendable efforts last month, including a couple of narrow defeats in better races. He handles all ground types and will receive capable assistance from Alice Mills in the saddle. Operateur, due to run at Hamilton on Wednesday, is an obvious danger if coming on here as seems likely with Megan Nicholls booked. The gelding has landed two Hamilton successes already this month for a yard that has suddenly found some form and is expected to be in the mix under his penalty. McBirney is respected off a dropping mark with topweight Tinseltown completing the shortlist on the back of a useful Beverley effort.
