In depth

Verdict

None of these have looked like winning so far but TELEGRAPH's fourth over 7f here a fortnight ago is arguably the best piece of form on offer. Andrew Balding's charge should go close with any further improvement. Signore Piccolo has experience of the track but failed to show much improvement at Ripon last time though he's still preferred to stablemate Miguela McGuire. Aeolus has a debut fifth at Pontefract under his belt and makes more appeal than Slanderous and the newcomer Orient Class.
