In depth

Verdict

This looks tricky given CONSERVE has every chance on today's terms but has returned a losing favourite in four of her last five starts. She gets only a tentative vote to finally come good after another placed effort over 1m5f here last time. Midnight Chorister has had just the five starts despite his age with only two of those coming on the Flat. He has a shout on last week's third over track and trip and is preferred to After The Storm. Hazzaat makes no appeal and the remainder have mostly been competing without success in bumpers.
