Verdict

Cobo Bay would be a leading contender if at his best but appears to have gone off the boil of late. Persian Peril has slid down the weights and looks to have every chance after a better effort here last time, while Onyx Of Arabia could also figure if handling the surface. HAKUNA MATATA finished a respectable fifth in a higher grade at Newcastle last time and, with more to come on only his fourth start, Brian Ellison's charge makes most appeal. Hit The Switch has form over a mile here and is another to consider.
