Verdict

L'ETACQ's last run came in the Super Sprint at Newbury. His only win so far came on the Polytrack but he was second at Goodwood earlier and that form should be good enough for a race like this. Amber Crystal has been knocking on the door and should be thereabouts again but Designate might be a principal danger if allowed an easy lead. He had Zebs Lad behind when returning from a short break at Lingfield. River Spirit is closely matched with a couple of these but is already looking exposed.
