Verdict

INTERROGATOR ran well to bustle up Kensou's Rhythm in claiming company over a mile here last month but he is equally effective over sprint distances and the fitting of headgear may be enough to give him the edge. Pundy appeals as the principal threat ahead of Causa.

Verdict

FIGHT THRU made light of a tardy start when a silver medallist over an extended 6f here at the beginning of last month but he is just as effective over today's mile and the extra yardage should help him if he fails to break away on terms. The consistent Hot Paris Night is suggested as the chief danger ahead of Gunslinger.

A trappy finale with no stand out performer. WICKED LOVE is the tentative selection as she showed promise on her second start earlier this month and has greater scope than most of today's rivals. Tammy's Window and Gee Street can slug it out for the consolation money.
