Hot Mustard gained his first success at Yarmouth last month and the assessor hasn't gone overboard with a 2lb rise so he should get into the mix. Plunder has been beaten in sellers and Testa Rossa ran poorly when fancied here last time. Eilan Mor has won once in 37 starts and never on Turf though in such a poor contest she has to be considered. CONOR ZUR was in very good form last summer and it's about time he was winning this term. He showed a bit more dash last time and this won't take much winning so he's handed the verdict.
