Verdict

Feather weight OVERQUEST is selected to follow-up his Hexham success. The ground was desperate when our pick won by a wide margin last week and connections are keen to run him again under a penalty. Three miles and cut in the ground is ideal and he can repeat the dose. Foxesbow is on a decent mark but has shown nothing when previously tried on ground with soft in the description, while Julius Caesar has a long lay-off to overcome and failed to complete on his only two previous tries here. Twelve Paces poses a more serious threat even though he is fully exposed, while Blazing Diva may have more improvement in her and with trip and ground ideal she could run a big race. Master Sebastian looks to be on the slide.
