Verdict

Astronereus was fancied at Goodwood nine days ago but ran poorly. From Frost has much to prove on Turf after his Doncaster run but Wrangler is on a hat-trick after scoring at Salisbury and Haydock, though both of those victories were achieved on soft going. TRIP TO PARIS showed a big improvement to beat Our Gabriel over course and distance last month and is fancied to confirm the form, despite revised terms. Ed Dunlop's charge can also get the better of the Mark Johnston pair Swivel and Snow Squall but Pack Leader had excuses last time at Goodwood having looked a progressive sort earlier and he has the beating of Snow Squall on the form book.
