Verdict

Kinyras has been way below his best so far this season while it's more than four years since Halla San last visited the winner's enclosure, though he's been showing up well in much better company albeit over longer trips. JUST LILLE won similar contests at York and Musselburgh last year and was far from disgraced behind Eternal Heart at Doncaster on her comeback in April. She doesn't stand much racing nowadays but this should be within her capabilities. Scarlet Prince was second at Redcar last month but faces a stiff task at the weights here.
