Verdict

This year's Wokingham hero, DANDY BOY was last seen finishing fourth to Society Rock in the Group One Sprint Cup at Haydock in September. A repeat of either of those efforts would be good enough to win this and the Irish raider gets the nod. Pandar is a bit of a dark horse as his three wins in Italy are hard to assess and he's having only his second start for Robert Cowell. Ballista and Capone have been in fine form in handicaps and it's doubtful we've seen the best of Hezmah yet as he was compromised by the soft ground at Newmarket last time. The consistent Artistic Jewel is capable of going close at this level and, if at his best, Iver Bridge Lad should be in the mix.
