Eilean Mor, who gained his first success on Turf on his 31st start over 1m4f at Musselburgh, was engaged here yesterday and would be taking a big drop in trip from his earlier run if taking part. Cono Zur bounces off the ground and was in excellent form at this time a year ago when the going was very quick but the veteran Dhaular Dhar hasn't won on the Flat since 2011 and pays for consistency in the ratings - he has been beaten twice off this mark recently. STAFFHOSS has never won on Turf and has been well beaten in his last two starts but he's taken a drop in grade and is a massive 19lb lower than when starting the season so is handed the verdict.
