Verdict

Soft ground appears to be the key to recent Nottingham third Stout Cortez and he's unlikely to get that here. Hallouella is consistent enough but she isn't really getting any closer to a first success. Likewise Frederic Chopin whose best efforts have come on the Polytrack. DRIFTER is still relatively unexposed and hinted that he needed further when fourth over 1m2f at Chepstow last month. He gets a tentative vote, though Olymnia appears to be improving and is a danger.
