Eshtibaak is on a recovery mission having been badly hampered when favourite at Kempton back in March and the admirably consistent Prince Of Sorrento has done all his winning over a mile or shorter. Weapon Of Choice is another with something to prove stepping up in trip but Las Verglas Star has every chance of reversing latest running at Ripon with Lieutenant Kojak on better terms. The latter has since won again at Epsom and should be thereabouts though both Tilsworth Glenboy and Union Island are facing tougher tasks than of late. Sirvino is at his best in soft ground as when a close-up seventh in the Wolferton at Royal Ascot last month and will go close with a similar effort in this lesser grade but lurking at the bottom of the weights is AHZEEMAH. He returned from a short break with a third at York last month and there should be plenty more to come from Saeed Bin Suroor's three-year-old this season.
