Verdict

The Aga Khan-owned SIMSIR can land a hat-trick of wins as the Mick Halford-trained gelding looks to add to wins at Cork and over C&D in September. The three-year-old could face stiff opposition from stall 13 in the shape of last time out winner Bold Approach for the Jim Bolger/Kevin Manning combination and course winner Sky Seven in first-time blinkers. Victorious over C&D, Charcor and Golden Valour should not be underestimated while Sheisdiesel has a record of two wins and a place from three starts over C&D. Secret Wizard met trouble in running on a couple of occasions earlier this month and could be overpriced.
