Verdict

Rain would bring the well handicapped Cheveton into the equation whilst the attractively weighted Judge 'n Jury has to be feared from a good draw having returned to form at York but it may be worth taking a chance at a price with his stablemate MATSUNOSUKE. It's been three years since he won on turf but he's run a couple of sound races in three runs for his new yard, has tumbled down the weights and has an excellent course record. Supporters will be anxiously hoping that the gaps appear for the hold-up performer with fans of the well treated Sohraab, the unlucky Rocket Rob and the habitually slow starting Piscean in the same boat. Ziggy Lee is quietly progressive, Medici Time and Five Star Junior continue to perform with credit and Avertor has been highly touted this season and may yet prove to be more than a morning glory but he'll need to be the real deal to score in the face of his toughest task to date.
