Verdict

A long absence isn't always a negative with a Godolphin runner so the lightly-raced Genius Step has to be considered in this. The boys in blue are also represented by top weight Invisible Hunter, a winner at Sandown in July, while the in-form Miss Ellany may still be on a decent mark. Trail Blaze doesn't know how to run a bad race and should also figure while Charitable Act took advantage of a drop down the ratings to score at Bath, though more is needed here. NAWWAAR was held in some regard as a two-year-old but took a while to come to himself this season. He has only just been touched off in his last two starts at Newmarket, however, and it would be no surprise to see John Dunlop's colt go one better here. Our Boy Jack may be best of the rest.
