Verdict

Al Alfa won on his reappearance at Stratford but he's unproven on ground this fast. Jump City has plenty of weight on his return to action but hasn't done a lot wrong so far over the larger obstacles while Dorset Naga was due to run at Wetherby yesterday. Stablemate VELATOR could be a useful stand-in, however, with his comfortable defeat of Carrigmorna King and Henry San over track and trip in April looking smart form. He'd gone over the top when pulled up in a race in which Barlow finished third here in May and is worth following this season. Shuil Royale continues to frustrate but has ability and looks the pick of the remainder ahead of Cardigan Island and the exposed Dark Energy.
