Verdict

Desert Command was headed right on the line at Epsom in August and, though a couple of pounds higher, seems sure to be on the premises again. Tight Fit has won three times this year but was well beaten off her new mark at Chepstow last time while Miliika was a big disappointment when favourite at Bath. Rocky Reef was second over a mile at Sandown last time but has only raced once before over this shorter trip and was well behind ACCESSION on that occasion. The latter's latest third at Goodwood behind Magic City looks the best form on offer and he can end his losing run here. O'Gorman is high enough in the weights at present but may still be best of the rest.
