Verdict

GUNMAKER's two efforts at the track have resulted in a victory, which came in January this year, and a second place on his most recent start last month. The son of Canford Cliffs remains on the same mark and could have further improvement to come on this surface. Bay Of Skaill went down by a short head over C&D last week, when having Focus Of Attention in behind in fourth, and the pair both warrant consideration, the latter running with first-time cheekpieces.

Verdict

There's plenty of stamina in ROYAL NAVY WARSHIP's pedigree, so he could easily take off trying 7f for this first time and he certainly has a workable mark to exploit. Focus of Attention and Ahla Bil Zain head the opposition.
