Verdict

It may be worth taking a chance on GENETICS after his wide margin win last time out at Ascot. There's no doubt his rivals gifted him an easy lead that day but he's progressive and there could be more to come up in trip. Northwest Frontier is another progressive sort capable of going well and his best effort came over course and distance but Soldier In Action could prove to be the main danger back on a very lenient handicap mark with Silvestre De Sousa in the saddle.
