Verdict

Raid finished eighth, beaten five and a half lengths, in the 2000 Guineas earlier in the year and is interesting back at 6f. He is the highest rated in the field, but FOXTROT LADY can put her superior experience to good use and doesn't know how to run badly. Boasting three wins from eight starts this year, she was only beaten two and a quarter lengths in the Stewards' Cup and has since performed well in defeat at Pontefract in Listed company. Nebo should also have his say if running up to his mark of 105.

Verdict

This looks competitive despite the small field, with the narrow vote in favour of FOXTROT LADY. She has made big strides forward throughout the campaign and can resume winning ways. Raid has been highly tried in his short career to date and can emerge as the chief threat with his sights lowered.
