Verdict

THEMAXWECAN has a fine chance of extending his trainer's winning sequence in this race to four. He was tough as teak when winning at Ascot last time and gave the impression there could be more to come. Saroog is another horse in fine form and he represents potentially the biggest danger, while Breath Caught has been given a chance by the handicapper and could be dangerous if he stays this longer trip. Byron Flyer and Island Brave both have faced tough tasks of late and it would not surprise to see one or both of them show something of a return to form in this company.
  1. Themaxwecan
  2. Breath Caught
  3. Saroog
