Verdict

MUNHAMER's half-brother, Cavaleiro, stayed 1m6f so this first try beyond a mile seems certain to suit John Gosden's colt. He may have needed last month's run at Kempton and looks to have been let in lightly on his handicap debut. Guilded Spirit stayed on strongly to score over the trip at Ffos Las three weeks ago and looks a danger but Mazaaher appears to be in the handicapper's grip having found little for pressure over 1m here last time. Topamichi also looks too high in the weights now while Ronaldinho has become very disappointing. Of the older horses, Choral Festival reserves her best for Windsor and course and distance winner Sheila's Buddy has lost his way lately.
