Verdict

PINK LLOYD knuckled down well to score by a neck over 6f here last time and could feasibly follow up over this slightly longer trip. Kingsport and Yorkton can fight it out for the silver medal.

Verdict

Godolphin representative HAWKBILL could be a warm order on his first start since finishing fourth in the Eclipse. Utmost had Tiz A Slam (second) and Seeking Albert (third) in arrears when landing a Grade 2 here last time and is considered the main danger.

Verdict

OCULIST rattled the crossbar over the extended 6f here last time and wouldn't need to find much improvement to go one better over this slightly shorter trip. Mizzona and Molinaro Deputy are considered the principal threats.
