In depth

Verdict

Richard Hannon runs three in this with jockey bookings suggesting the race-fit Hedge End is the preferred of the trio ahead of Strait Run and Raajis, who both won on their final start last year. Golden Spear and Zambeasy both arrive off the back of recent wins but have more on their plate here. Best Kept, Alisios and Voyageofdiscovery were all sent off favourite on their latest starts but supporters were left with worthless vouchers and the trio should be treated with a bit of caution for now. RAPID ADVANCE has changed stables since finishing fourth at Nottingham in April but that maiden has worked out quite well and he doesn't look badly treated on his handicap debut. He's the type his new handler does well with so gets the nod as he appear to hold Homestretch on collateral form.
