Verdict

Richard Fahey has trained two of the three previous winners and Right Touch is a leading contender with Paul Hanagan on board. However, he didn't improve as much as expected when fourth at Newmarket last time and RIVELLINO makes more appeal. He finished a creditable third in a better maiden than this at Ascot on his debut and will have benefited for the experience. The remainder have some catching up to do to match the principals and A J Cook may come out best of them ahead of Southwell runner-up Bapak Bangsawan and The Art Of Racing, a well beaten favourite on his debut.
