In depth

Verdict

The going is an unknown quantity for a few of these. Profitable, beaten off a lower mark at Haydock last time, Goldcrest, Dittander and Tarando are those who will have to prove they handle conditions but the ultra-consistent Perardua and MAJESTIC HERO should feel at home having both won on a soft surface. The latter led at this distance in a hot nursery at York nine days ago and might be worth another chance eased in grade.
