Verdict

ST MORITZ has the big handicap form to put all of his rivals to the sword. Represented by a plethora with a shout, Mark Johnston has booked Richard Hills for this progressive gelding suggesting he means business. Things didn't go to plan at Cork but he should appreciate the return to seven furlongs and his course form is rock solid. Frankie Dettori sticks with Ayr Gold Cup hero Redford who needs holding onto until the last minute, and it is perhaps significant that he doesn't ride the progressive filly Sarasota Sunshine. However her trainer often employs Johnny Murtagh for big handicap swoops and therefore she looks a huge player. Acrostic looks the pick of Luca Cumani's duo assuming the ground stays dry, whilst Castles In The Air has won over this course and distance for Richard Hughes before. The unfashionable pair of winners, Navajo Chief and Rulesn'regulations, will be overpriced whilst at big odds Treadwell could run well with the race likely to be run to suit. The progressive Kakatosi is another who commands plenty of respect.
