Verdict

Woodacre continued his good progress with a win at Ripon last week where he beat Eeny Mac a couple of lengths. He bids for a hat-trick under a penalty but can still figure if as effective in soft ground. Sir Charlie Kunz also has something to prove off a higher mark on his first start since winning at Wolverhampton back in January. Buthelezi hasn't won on the Flat since 2011 but drops down a couple of grades for this and could figure. SOPHISTICATED HEIR is best with plenty of cut in the ground, as when scoring at Leopardstown and Leicester earlier in the year and David O'Meara's charge gets the nod.
