Verdict

This is extremely competitive, but a chance is taken on INDIAN SOUNDS breaking his duck for the season. Paul Midgley's charge looks in the form of his life at present, losing out by a nostril in the Flying Scotsman Stakes at Musselburgh 12 days ago, and he looks too well treated to ignore back in handicap company. Dakota Gold, Raasel and Zargun could have a big say in proceedings, too.

  1. INDIAN SOUNDS (IRE)
  2. DAKOTA GOLD
  3. RAASEL
