Verdict

HAZAPOUR hasn't hit the heights that his early talent suggested but he still won the Derby Trial here and travelled well for a long way before struggling up the hill at Epsom. He didn't look fully fit on his return and with plenty of prominent racers in a small field and the presence of his likely front-running stablemate Zuenoon, then a strongly run mile could be ideal. Last year's winner Zihba is the danger with his overall profile suggesting a bit of give is ideal while the classy pair Verbal Dexterity and Psychedelic Funk can go well but would prefer a heavy surface. Dunkirk Harbour takes a huge step up from a maiden win but represents powerful connections.
