Verdict

An exceptionally tight-looking handicap but three-year-olds have won this for the past three years and they can have the upper hand again. After landing a Haydock maiden, Estifzaaz attempted to make all at Ascot but was caught in the closing stages. He's on the same mark here and has to be on the short-list though it's CONSIGN who is taken to complete a hat-trick. He looked a smart prospect when landing a classified event at Newmarket then confirmed that view at Windsor. A 6lb rise doesn't look harsh so this looks within his capabilities. None of the remainder can be dismissed with the improving Yarmouth winner Macchiara taken to come out best of the older brigade.
