Verdict

MELTING DEW went close last time out at Goodwood and with more progress on the cards for his patient handler, the four-year-old could be a pattern level performer in the making. Titus may improve for the step up in trip after a smart win last time while Caliburn is entirely unexposed on just his sixth start and he's another who could improve for the extra distance here.
  1. Melting Dew
  2. Titus
  3. Caliburn
