Verdict

BILLY'S BAND burst through between rivals late in the piece to score over 6f here last month and the move back up in distance looks a positive judged on that performance. Stylish Act backed up his track and trip win with a close fifth and clearly remains in good heart, while Atlantic Venture is also of interest.

Verdict

Aquinnah has her sights lowered and looks to hold outstanding claims judged on her neck second on debut here last month but she flopped last time so preference is for PURE LIGHT. She found only one too good at the first time of asking over this track and trip earlier in the month and will be sharper for the experience. Stance is next best.

Verdict

Dark Vision is holding his form well around a route at present and is unlikely to be far away but the vote goes to ZEE ARE ONE, who had the first-named behind when runner-up here latest and is fully effective under these conditions. Clever King and Speak The Word are others capable of making their presence felt.
