In depth

Verdict

None of these are easily dismissed including the newcomer Imagine The Chat. But the vote goes to FLYING EAGLE after a close-up second at Sandown given recent course and distance winner, Capilla, is burdened with a penalty. Thomas Junior showed promise on his debut at this track in March and makes more appeal than the others returning from a lay-off, Jazz Thyme and Gorsky Island.
