Verdict

Noguchi didn't feature on his British debut at Goodwood but it would be no surprise to see a vastly improved display with that run under his belt and his yard in terrific form. The market will no doubt tell us more but he remains something of an unknown quantity at this stage and preference is for SPECTAIT. The four-time course winner has been dropped by 2lbs following his latest run over an inadequate trip to allow him to slip into this handicap at the top of the weights and he should be all the sharper for that outing. She's A Character may improve for the switch to this surface and cheekpieces but a bigger challenge should come from Veroon who has made the frame in both runs here and must go close whilst Norwegian Dancer is not without claims.
