Verdict

Roger Varian seemingly holds the key to this contest with his runners King Bolete and APPEARED with slight preference going to the latter provided he takes to the softer conditions here. He was impressive at Royal Ascot and looks capable of capitalising on this mark. King Bolete shouldn't be dismissed and the form of his win last time out has been boosted since. Noble Gift is potentially best of the rest and his consistency may see him run a place.
