In depth

Verdict

The drop to 5f worked the oracle for Peterkin at Chester last week. But he may struggle to make all on this stiffer track off a 6lb higher mark and is no certainty to confirm running with Piazon and Speed Hawk. Stars Above Me blew the start here last time and might be worth another chance while Yarmouth maiden winner Royal Seal could be feasibly treated. Soul Brother also looks to be on an attractive mark but EXTORTIONIST would take some stopping if recapturing his smart juvenile form. Jim Crowley looks an ideal booking for the top weight who has blistering speed as he showed when winning the Windsor Castle at Ascot last year.
