In depth

Verdict

American trainer Wesley Ward knows what it takes to win this so Keeneland Polytrack winner Hootenanny is worth noting. Mind Of Madness ran well behind Adaay, who was due to run in the Coventry earlier on the card, at Yarmouth a fortnight ago while Mubtaghaa arrives on the back of a win at Nottingham. Roudee has shown plenty of speed in decent company and so has Sarista. MERDON CASTLE ran well at Windsor behind subsequent Listed winner Kool Kompany and has the beating of Bwana, Haxby and Majestic Hero on collateral form. David Elsworth's colt should make a bold bid with Ryan Moore getting the leg-up. Fuwairt came good at Chepstow earlier in the month and Four Seasons scored in heavy ground at Leicester recently while Windsor winner Among Angels is another to consider.
