Verdict

OLD PERSIAN shades the vote on handicap debut. He may have disappointed when favourite for a Listed race last time out but he was too free in the early stages and could be a different prospect on return here. Dukhan may carry on improving with another step up in trip here while last year's winner of this, John Gosden, saddles the unbeaten Casey Jones who should be thereabouts if he proves as effective on turf.
  1. Old Persian
  2. Casey Jones
  3. Dukhan
