Verdict

Capponi was a very impressive winner on debut but doesn't look thrown in at the weights so instead we turn to AGONY AND ECSTASY, who was a nice winner last time, while Nazreef is also worth looking at on his handicap bow. The Ralph Beckett trained selection ran out a three length winner at Chepstow last time extending his record over this trip to three wins in five attempts. His mark rise looks about fair and he looked to act on this surface on his only start. Capponi ran away with a Lingfield maiden on debut and from this yard should improve for the run, however, we wait to see if he acts on this surface and whether his mark is fair. No surface doubts for Nazreef as he won well over course and distance on his first start but we are interested that connections reach for the tongue tie for his first start as a three-year-old and the form from that debut run is very weak. Soul Heaven is unexposed and has scored from this mark on the turf so must be considered along with Dolphin Rock with him only just denied from a 1lb better off on his last start. A really good contest this that can go the way of Agony and Ecstacy.
