Verdict

Last year's winner, RATTLING JEWEL, returned to form with a good second last time out and he's still on a workable mark judged on the best of his form from this time last year. Sors could benefit from first-time headgear but Mokhalad may be the main danger having improved for the drop to sprint trips.
