Verdict

This represents a drop in grade for Beau Duke and Andrew Balding's gelding, who wasn't beaten far when fifth over 7f at Salisbury last time, looks the best of those with experience ahead of Titus Star. But a couple of newcomers also catch the eye in this. Rowan Sun, from the same family as the useful Suhaad and Munif, is a half-brother to a winning miler and should go well, though preference is for STEREOTYPICAL. Ralph Beckett's colt was a relatively cheap purchase but is a half-brother to a filly who won over a mile as a two-year-old and the booking of Jim Crowley for his debut is a positive sign.
