Verdict

A trappy-looking contest where winning for is sparse, preference is for TANRUNDY, who looks incredibly well-treated given his encouraging run at Fontwell last time. The same headgear is tried again and that may help him at this trip. Similarly wind surgery irked out improvement in Ector last time and he looks well-treated on the weights if he is to progress once again. The Manuscript would be dangerous to ignore too given his encouraging second here two starts ago, given if he recovers from a poor run last time.
  1. Tanrudy
  2. The Manuscript
  3. Ector
