In depth

Verdict

Joshua Potman and Horsetracker look up against it but the remaining trio all have a shout. Salateen attempted to make all at Haydock and was only caught close home while Henrytheaeroplane just failed to reel in the winner at Musselburgh last time. But AL BANDAR is a rare two-year-old runner at the track for the Hannon yard and having finished well clear of third when runner-up on the Turf course at Lingfield, he gets a tentative vote in a tight contest.
