In depth

Verdict

WOOLFALL SOVEREIGN won over the minimum trip at Lingfield before going very close over 6f here behind Piscean. Dropping down a grade for this, he's the one to beat in his current form. Royal Bajan has plenty to find with the selection on Lingfield running but Le Toreador is capable at this level though looks high enough in the weights at present. Moorhouse Lad had Dorback behind when runner-up at Kempton and poses a bigger threat than the latter's stablemate Tango Sky.
