Tadkheer is an interesting newcomer but marginal preference is for those with experience with the vote going to LIBERTINO ahead of Regency Art. William Haggas boasts a respectable track record at Warwick so any support for his newcomer, Tadkheer, would be of obvious interest but his record with his juvenile runners is only modest. It's offputting that Libertino hasn't been seen since making his debut in May but he shaped with plenty of promise and he's taken to build on that. The form is only average so the market could be interesting but this doesn't appear to be the strongest of races. The booking of Fallon for Regency Art certainly takes the eye and he's another that could leave his debut running behind but he'll need to as he was beaten 17 lengths back in April. Sharp Shoes may have been flattered by his finishing position at Haydock so he's taken on even though the performance probably rated a career best. Sonny G and Taeping both finished last on debut so couldn't be confident picks but the latter's effort did, at least, come in a good race at York and he's the more interesting of the pair. The other runner in the field, Destiny Rules, isn't an obvious sort on paper and is best watched as we chance Libertino.
