Verdict

A winner on return at Nottingham in April, ASTRO KING has improved further in defeat subsequently, finishing a solid second in the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot in June, making no impression on the winner but keeping on well. The return to 1¼m is worth exploring and he's fancied to make another bold bid. Surrey Pride scored impressively over C&D in May and is feared, ahead of Aaddeey and Winter Reprise.
