Verdict

Majeed won his maiden here and has claims on his latest third at Goodwood. He's preferred to Portmonarch who has come up short in a couple of lower grade handicaps of late while Paddy's Saltantes will have come on for a recent pipe-opener on Turf. Alwilda was unfancied for her reappearance at Kempton but much better is expected today though the vote goes to BANTAM. The latter made steady progress in three starts in maidens and a winning handicap debut looks on the cards as she steps up in trip.
