In depth

Verdict

Crimson Queen, Shawkantango, No Mean Trick and You'relikemefrank have all been below par lately and Desert Strike is high enough in the weights again now but the remainder all have some sort of chance. A further drop in distance is a bit of a worry for 7f winner Strong Man but both of Passionada's victories have come over the minimum and a visor could help sharpen up Master of Disguise. However, he has a bit to find to overturn recent course running with CARDINAL and Robert Cowell's eight-year-old is probably the one to beat.
