Verdict

After his easy maiden success at Haydock a year ago, Mijhaar was fancied for the King Edward VII Stakes but couldn't quite make the leap into that grade. His only other start came in a tough Newmarket handicap where he finished runner-up and with further progress likely this season he should be in the shake-up. Justonefortheroad has done very well in soft ground handicaps this season and the extra furlong today will be in his favour but it's FURY, who finished close-up in the Lincoln and Spring Cup and probably found 1m1f just stretch his stamina last time, who is handed the vote. The lightly-raced Italian import Bezique struggled on soft ground in a Group 3 when last seen a year ago but is one to keep an eye on but Invisible Man is still looking a few pounds high in the weights. Prince Of Johanne produced a shock when landing the Cambridgeshire but don't rule out another big run if the ground dries out as he made a winning reappearance last year and will appreciate the likely strong gallop. Common Touch has won three times over 7f on this track and shouldn't be inconvenienced over the extra furlong and can make his presence felt.
