Verdict

Hemp Hemp Hurray has knocked on the door at this level the last twice and the application of blinkers could help him go one better here. However, it is hard to ignore the momentum BUSHROD has developed during his three-race unbeaten run and he looks more than capable of stepping up to the plate once again here. Yorkton was a Grade Three winner last time and is another who demands respect.

Dun Drum was a useful third on debut and could easily improve on that performance now tried in blinkers, while Summer Retreat has the chance to build on his fifth last time. However, preference is for WILEY O'RIELLY, who was much much improved last time when knocking on the door and could easily go one better here.

Verdict

JOHNNY BEAR had English Illusion held back in third when landing the Grade One Northern Dancer Stakes last time and the seven-year-old is the one they have to beat here. British raiders Thundering Blue and Desert Encounter have to be respected, while Khan is another interesting contender.

Verdict

SANTA MONICA has the best form on offer and could give Chad Brown another Graded success. Golden Legend is going the right way, while Sheikha Reika is a rare US runner for Roger Varian and could thrive in this style of racing.
