In depth

Verdict

Mark Johnston's three-year-olds have a strike rate of 40 percent at this track in 2014 but Swivel failed to pick up as expected when third at Kempton last week, his fifth start of the year, and runner-up CHINOTTO can confirm superiority. Andrew Balding's colt gave the impression this longer trip would suit and the form looks stronger than Boogangoo's recent wins in plating company. Officer Drivel was only beaten a head in a lower grade contest last time and is preferred to Captain Myles of the others.
