Verdict

Swiss Pride is the clear form pick and the application of blinkers doesn't need to spark too much improvement, if any, but his only previous run with give underfoot resulted in a terrible Sandown display. His stablemate Dandy Lad could play a part, as could Vino Rosso and Arthur's Spirit, but Robert Cowell saddles three newcomers who won't need to be anything too special. The pick of them is ROCKET ACTION, a son of Tornado out of a mare who was second in the Cheveley Park and fourth in the 1000 Guineas.

Verdict

SWISS PRIDE was back in fine form at Bath 3 weeks ago and can get off the mark at the eighth attempt now fitted with blinkers. Vino Rosso looks a big player, while Rocket Action appeals most of the 3 Robert Cowell newcomers without the benefit of market clues.
