In depth

Verdict

The three-year-old FAT GARY showed his best form on testing ground at this time a year ago but bounced back on the Polytrack last time and still looks well enough treated to take this. Italian Tom hasn't won since last summer but this is his favoured surface and he was only just touched off at Yarmouth last week. Expect another big effort from him and also from Sylvia Pankhurst, who likes it around here. Sunny Side Up is reasonably treated though all of his Turf victories have come on fast ground while Noodles Blue Boy appears to favour the minimum trip.
