Verdict

BEAT THE SHOWER only failed by a head when runner-up over track and trip last time and is worth another chance to go one better. He should confirm running with both My Destination and Authentication but Madrasa could prove a problem. The latter has been in good form over shorter trips of late, winning over 1m6f at Redcar last month, while Medieval Bishop scored over 1m4f here recently and attempts today's longer distance for the first time. Petella can race off the same mark as when runner-up at Newcastle last week and is another with claims.
