Verdict

COME ON BLUE CHIP had looked in the handicapper's grip before going close at Kempton last time. He can race off a lower mark back on Turf and should confirm latest running with Royal Empire and Switzerland. The former has scope for further improvement but has over four lengths to make up with the selection and the latter had beaten the re-opposing Unex Michelangelo on the Polytrack earlier. Kahruman has lost his way since his decent fourth in Listed company over C&D in May and Razorbill hasn't improved as expected since scoring at Nottingham back in June. Benzanno is upped in class and may struggle.
