Verdict

LISKA was beaten less than four lengths into seventh over 5f here last time, finishing powerfully. He should appreciate this extra furlong and gets the vote to see out first-time blinkered Knots On Fire and the improving Starboy.

Verdict

You can almost set your clock by ONE PUTT PAR she is that consistent and, after just failing to get home over 110 yards further here last time, dropping back in trip looks sure to help. She shades the verdict ahead of Well Caught and Victory Ice, who both drop slightly in grade.

Verdict

A few of these have doubts hanging over them but TISDALE should find this easier than recent assignments and has more to offer over this distance. Mambo Rock is often a big player in this class, while Unusually Big may well be running on at the business end.
