In depth

Verdict

Grey Mirage had previous winner Alfred Hutchinson back in third when scoring here last month and also finished ahead of Verse Of Love when runner-up at Kempton earlier. But he's at his best when allowed to set the pace in small fields and has drawn the outside stall for this. George Guru and Bravo Echo are usually thereabouts at this level without being quite good enough and Frontier Fighter saves his best for Southwell. Georgian Bay continues to rise in the weights without winning while Forceful Appeal and Akfar are upped in class. HAWKEYETHENOO is a smart sprinter but can also count the Victoria Cup over 7f at Ascot amongst his previous successes and Jim Goldie's charge gets the vote to come good again in this.
