Verdict

Plenty with a shout in the opener but it could pay to stick with SECRET MISSILE. It was soft ground when he scored at Newmarket last time and that looks stronger form than Vodka Chaser's recent win at Yarmouth. Jiroft has a shout on his third at Sandown last month while blinkers are applied to Sacha Park in the hope of improvement. Dutch Interior is better than his latest modest effort at Ascot suggests and Storm Lightning is usually thereabouts at this track without being good enough to win.
