Verdict
BAGHDAD won at this meeting last year over this trip and he was well backed prior to his Epsom success last time. He may be able to carry on that progression from 4lb higher given he's clearly progressive, winning four of his last five starts. A host of chances from the remainder but it might be worth following the handicap form from York that saw Fujaira Prince, Corgi and Collide all finish in the places last time with preference for the Fujaira Prince given his unexposed profile.
  1. Baghdad
  2. Fujaira Prince
  3. Corgi
