Verdict

With most of these struggling to find their best, MUHARRER looks to have decent claims. He went close to catching Cosmic Sun at Carlisle last month and Michael Dods' charge has plenty of scope for improvement. A winning hurdler, Teenage Idol ran his best race so far on the Flat when runner-up over a longer trip at Ayr while today's drop in class should help Fennel finish closer as he's only 1lb higher than when scoring at Beverley in April. Royal Peculiar has a chance on his best form on Polytrack but arrives out of sorts as do both Flying Power and Pintrada.
