Verdict

Progressive as a 3-y-o, NUGGET confirmed the promise of his Nottingham reappearance (unlucky in his run) when running out a convincing winner of the Spring Cup at Newbury 2 weeks ago, and on that evidence, another bold bid is in the offing from a 5 lb higher mark. Astro King finished in front of the selection at Nottingham and can feature, with Acquitted and Tom Collins completing the shortlist.
