In depth

Verdict

Tarooq has been in fine form in sellers but will find this much tougher and Seek The Fair Land is preferred on the back of a recent win over track and trip. SULIS MINERVA has been thereabouts of late in higher grade sprints and she's taken to make the most of today's drop in class and come out best. Forest Edge has a couple of lengths to finds with the latter on latest running while recent winners Profile Star and Waking Warrior look high enough in the weights now.
