In depth

Verdict

EMPEROR JULIUS has the best form on offer and can take advantage despite having his first outing since November. Jo Crowley's charge had a couple of subsequent winners behind when runner-up over a mile at this track and a similar effort will suffice in this company. Viva L'Inghilterra will have improved for her recent debut fourth and looks better than Guru Baby and Sid while newcomer Back On The Trail makes little appeal on breeding.
