In depth

Verdict

HARLEQUIN STRIKER is the most exposed of this field but is also the one to set a decent standard, having shaped well on both starts here over 7f on good to firm ground when second to Marcano and more recently third to Misterioso. He's admittedly vulnerable to an improver or newcomer but still rates the one to beat. Crafty Choice, noted when staying on pleasingly on debut over Windsor's 6f, has to be on the shortlist on the back of that promise for Hughes and Hannon, whilst Lysander The Greek and Muzarkash may do better. Plymouth Sound and Illusive Force look the most interesting newcomers.
