Verdict

Golden Desert took advantage of his tumble down the weights to score over C&D last month. This looks his level now but given he's not certain to recapture his best form, a chance is taken that MULLINS WAY can. He too was racing off much higher marks at the start of the year and having shown glimpses of a return to form last time, a speculative vote goes the way of Jo Hughes' charge. Excellent Jem is not out of this on his all-weather debut though Sunshine Always looks to be treading water at present and is getting no help from the handicapper. Exceedexpectations had been in decent form before finding the heavy ground against him at Yarmouth but Epsom winner Purley Queen is preferred.
