Verdict

Hoof It would cruise home here if back to his best, but this is his first visit to the track for over a year and this might be the day to take him on, especially as next month's Stewards' Cup at Glorious Goodwood is on the agenda. Tangerine Trees is likely to make this a tremendous gallop from the stalls but the suspicion remains that he may not be as good as he once was, although a good run is anticipated. Heeraat must be given serious consideration on the back of a laudable Royal Ascot effort behind Sole Power but MY PROPELLER has frequently given the impression that he could progress through the sprinting ranks, a view strengthened by a comfortable Listed victory at Ayr last time. He holds Jwala on that running and gets the vote. Kingsgate Choice and Demora are also progressing well and are well worth taking note of as they search for some black type although the latter was engaged to run here yesterday.
