Verdict

A competitive looking handicap but it's top-weight TRADING PUNCHES who makes most appeal and he looks set to get his conditions here while the step up in trip could see him take another step forward. Frontispiece holds an entry for Royal Ascot and he would want to be going close here if he is to justify that entry. Rosarno was restless in the stalls on his return to action at Windsor but he may do better if his temperament doesn't get the better of him here.
