Verdict

MILKY WAY should have plenty more to offer than most in this 1m2f handicap, and has the added bonus of being partnered by Ryan Moore. By Galileo, this five-year-old has been very lightly raced for his age having been sidelined between August 2015 and June 2017. However, it was encouraging to see him showing tenacity in a three way thriller for Amateur Riders over this trip at Newbury last month (just edged out by Hawridge Glory). The third horse in that contest, Raj Balaraaj has won since (beating Funky Footsteps), who on that evidence should be the chief danger if proving as effective at this trip on just her second attempt over ten furlongs.
