Verdict

A couple of these have decent claims on their best form but arrive out of sorts. Emilio Largo is one, as he recorded a treble last summer but has failed to threaten in either start this year, while the other, Snow Bay, also rattled-up a hat-trick last season but has been in dreadful form since. In contrast, last year's winner DUBAI DYNAMO looked better than ever when scoring over C&D last time and he's taken to defy a penalty and follow-up. Extraterrestrial has a bit to find with the selection on earlier running and Toto Skyllachy has something to prove in this grade.
