Verdict

A typically competitive handicap for the track where the suggestion is the in-form SOLAR SPIRIT. John Quinn's charge turned the tables on Cara's Request over course and distance last time when there was cut in the ground, after that rival had had his measure earlier in the month. There should again be little to choose between them but the selection's ready win last time suggests that he might defy a 6lb penalty. Trans Sonic likes it here and with cut in the ground and should be in there pitching from today's mark of 73, while Fibs And Flannel would be very interesting if supported but despite his pedigree he has yet to show his best when there is juice in the ground.
