Verdict

The three-year-olds are of most interest here and Luca Cumani's ASHINGTON just gets the nod. He appeared not stay over further last time but had previously looked on the up over this trip. Dr Richard Kimble wasn't disgraced at Glorious Goodwood last week and his front-runnning style may get them all at it from some way out, while River Dart is weighted to run well if back on top of his game. Whinging Willie has been out of sorts but it is worth checking for any market move off his reduced mark, and Cheeky Rascal might not be far away off his light weight.
