Verdict

A case of some sort can be made for many in this. There is an abundance of pace drawn low to middle and the centre of the track was the place to be here on Tuesday. With that in mind CONVERSANT gets the nod given his impressive manner of victory last time and the current form of his yard. Biddy Brady looks another likely to build on an encouraging seasonal debut for her yard, whilst Campion, Our Little Pony and Harrogate have conditions to suit and could surprise at a generous price. Cocktail, Rogue Hero, Mighty Mac and Mr Wagyu are all worth noting for support in the market.
  1. Conversant
